Good point Marilyn. It's interesting that the reverse is true on the 
east coast.  SUPREME SULTAN, everywhere I have seen it, is so large it 
can not stand up.  As a result of the flower size, the plant itself 
suffers and tends not to be as healthy.  As a rule, space-age iris do 
very well on the east coast.  (esp. Monty's)  It is therefore VERY 
important that Judges visit (totally new concept) gardens several times, 
and as many different ones as possible, to properly evaluate the 
cultivars under different conditions.  

A thought..... "I find it interesting that whatever iris is grown in 
large amounts and in many locations at a National Convention comes home 
with National awards either that year or the next."  just a thought....
