 This last fall, down at the Wal-Mart in Lancaster,Ca. they DID
have some Iris in just such a display,(well I can only guess they
might have been labled right, I'll find out myself), and within
about 30 days they had sold all the Iris. At the same time, the
Armstrong centers were running an ad in the newspapers, for
"Named" TBI's from $1.50 to $3.00 a plant. Couldn't get down to
one to see them, but the ad was in ALL major L.A. area papers.
