	I guess we are dealing with micro climates.  I discussed earlier my 
poor luck with medians in my Ft. Worth garden, which was pobably 50 
to 60 miles away from Diana in Richardson, where medians flourish.

	One of the premier arilbred hybridizers is Lin Flanagan in Ft. 
Worth, again about the same distance from Diana, where arilbreds 
won't grow.

	Also, soils can vary greatly over short distances.  I had the 
wonderful sandy loam type in Ft. Worth; whereas, my brother who lived 
ten miles away, had the black gumbo clay that dries into chunks of 
coal after it is tilled.   I tried planting some of my irises in his 
garden.  They struggled.  So, a lot of factors are to be figured into 
your success or lack of.....with medians or arilbreds in this case.
