SUPREME SULTAN is a little bit of a reluctant grower here (in the subtropical
gravel pile), and seems to be more responsive to water than many TBs - last
year, it bloomed late, well into the hot dry weather, and was a cute little
thing - about 24" tall with the cutest little flowers - about 1/3 - 1/2 the
size of VICTORIA FALLS or DUSKY CHALLENGER.  It's still alive, but didn't
bloom this year.

I don't like novelty iris (horns/spoons/flounces or other wierd stuff) but
saw THORNBIRD in bloom this spring and think it is lovely.  It is NOT
photogenic, but is a beautiful flower in person, and the fact that it bloomed
normally in Tennessee this awful year says a lot about it's garden value.
