I agree with you to a certain point in your statement. I personally don't care
to have any garden plant that looks cluttered, leaf spot, won't increase be
whether an iris or not. Bloom is only one aspect of the flower. I agree take
the bloom away and out it goes...but why have the most gorgeous bloom on a
crummy plant why not have both. We can have both if we work and strive for
that goal.
