Verrrrrry interesting.  I thought that was the case.  As far as not 
having any rot, the growing conditions in the Pacific NW are much 
different that here in the east, not only the weather, but the soil. 
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying what Schreiners and Cooleys are 
doing is wrong.  Let's face it, when you open the box of irises you want 
to see healthy plants. (Bigger is Better?)  Many of the growers in 
Region 4 have used the clothes line method with high degree of success.

Thx Ted for the info. :-)
