Lora, If you love a challenge, you will love KILT LILT!!!! This iris
won the Dykes Medal (how I will never know) and has died more than it
has bloomed. I have only seen it bloom well (sort of) in 2 gardens in
Region 4, and nowhere else. I don't think it is such a lovely plicata
anyway. A lot of plics fade badly after opening.
Anyway, go for it!!!!! Let's hear from you as to your results. :-)
