Re: Iris-Talk Iris of the Milennium

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Nice to have Bill Smoot back.  Hi, Bill.

My nomination for the iris of the millenium (well, the century anyway)
would be SNOW FLURRY.

Has there ever been a more important iris, both for its own sake as an
excellent and beautiful garden plant, and as a parent of other hybrids?
I'm sure some of you data-crunchers with extensive holdings in pedigrees
could probably trace almost every Dykes winner since 1940 back to SNOW
FLURRY in some way....

And perhaps another nominee could be STEPPING OUT, in recognition of its
long. long run on the Symposium and on regional popularity polls.  Does
anyone know if an iris has stayed on the Symposium longer (a challenge for
Mike Lowe)?
