Dear Griff:  Yes, I am certainly hoping and planning to be at Region 4
meeting. I spent a lot of effort on recessive amoenas forty years ago,
including pink amoenas. I gave it up with the advent of Paul Cook's
dominant amoenas. But I have still done a few BAROQUE PRELUDE was a good
yellow one, and a full sibling to I DO! I also had a brown amoena
introduced the year before TRUDY. It is CARMEL SUNDAE. Some Americans would
not grow it because to them I misspelled "Caramel". However, Carmel is the
Canadian spelling. One lady in New England wrote to me that C.Sundae was
her favorite iris. Lloyd Z.
