On the Friday night chat last night, I was discussing multiple bloomstalks
with Roger Duncan (Superstition Iris Gardens). He and Rick have seen multiple
stalks out of a mother rz. They were separated from each other on the rz and
did not have fans. He said they saw them on Solano and some others (I think).
I will be interesting to see if we can carry this trait into other crosses.
Also interesting to see how this affects increases.

I wonder if there are any dwarf genes in the ancestry of Solano.
