Re: CULT: Store bought irises

From: Wjobe@aol.com

I heard that the big catalog co's buy up every left over iris they can at the
end of the season from as many growers as they can.  Then they group all the
colors; all blue
together all yellow together etc.  then they pick out one blue name for the
one yellow name for all the yellows and etc.  That's why once in a while you
might get lucky and get the right name on one.  Of course, the other 99% are
misnamed!!  It's hard not to want to rescue them tho!  They can always be used
in the designs, since they can't be entered in hort.
