Are you kidding? BEFORE THE STORM is a great grower and increaser. I have it
and LADY FRIEND growing together so both of these vigorous irises can fight
over the space. It would look even better growing beside VANITY. Black and
pink irises make a dramatic presentation together. Re "just another black
iris", I'd say it is "sour grapes" or rather questionable judgment. BEFORE
THE STORM is not as big a flower as many blacks, not as ruffled as some, but
wonderful, wonderful....it looks like an iris!!! Clarence Mahan in VA
