Mabel Coday is a very lovely Siberian iris with many virtues, and based on
the advertised sweet fragrance I have wasted a lot of time sniffing its
flowers repeatedly at all times of the day and evening.  I have sniffed in my
garden, in Carol Warner's garden, in every garden where I have found
it....and  I have never detected any fragrance whatsoever.  I think when the
person detecting fragrance was sniffing he/she was wearing too much Chanel
for Men or Chanel Nr. 5.  Clarence Mahan in VA   aka CEMahan@aol.com
