CULT:SPEC:HIST: Foliage in Winter


From: HIPSource@aol.com

Greetings,

I was going through a copy of the AIS Bulletin for January, 1926 and I
happened upon something about the behavior of some bearded iris foliage in
winter. This is very old information, and may not be significant when talking
of modern cultivars. It is also site/year specific, but I shall pass it on
without comment for those of you who are mulling these things.

Note that some information is for the irises once considered species, which
are not now so regarded, i.e. plicata, squalens, neglecta, amoena. They now
are considered forms or hybrids of species.

The report is for the condition of Iris foliage in Idaho in January when the
temperatures had reached a minimum of seven degrees Fahrenheit with no snow
cover. 

The first entry is the iris, the second is the number of varieties studied,
the third is the number of those uninjured, the next is for the number showing
injury, the next for those destroyed. Presumptively this last means all
foliage was lost. No info about the death or recovery of the plants.

"Of the germanicas Kochi was the only one appreciably injured." 

["Sections" were also noted.]

This then, for what it is worth.
