	This is two separate items in the Judges Handbook.  Not only is an iris
supposed to produce 3-5 increase per rhizome per year under
Durability/Perennial Qualities, but it is also supposed to have a ratio of
25-75% bloomstalks to fans under Floriferousness.  So, theoretically, you
not only need to count how many fans there are but then figure out if it
produced enough bloomstalks.  George's 1 to 3 rule falls firmly inside the
parameters for Floriferousness, wish he was here to give us his opinion
about counting increase.

Hi Dana,

When I did garden judging with George Sutton at the convention, we counted
number of bloomstalks to number of increases.  The ratio we were looking for
was 1 bloomstalk for at least 3 increases.  Then you don't have to count
number of years.
