Hi Linda,

I agree with you 100 percent. Until an iris is grown all across the U. S. we
really don't know if it will grow or not. But to carry this a little
further..I can grow iris in my garden that a friend can't which lives 8 miles
away. A lot has to do with the makeup of the soil within a given area. I also
agree that we need a recorder that could be sent with the sympossium ballet or
have each gardner send a list of the iris that grow well in their garden.
Course we would need a few counters to do this job. I for one would be more
than happy to be a counter for I feel this would be a big help especially to
gardners that buy older iris say 5 years or older. I buy quiet a few new ones
each year so wouldn't help me out to much. But something we could do...is ask
the hybridizer's to mention area;'s that it has grown well in when the iris is
introduced. This year I would know if it has done well in Oklahoma City it
most likley will do well here. See what happens when you unleash someone...he
doesn't know when to shut up...
