Re: TB:Black Iris:

Hi Walter,
You are getting pretty good at the "BTW, IMHO, FWIW" stuff!  BEFORE THE STORM is a poor performer here also.  The stalks are always stunted and have a low bud count.  If the buds ever open the flowers are usually half melted and very narrow.  I guess it looks good in PA.

> BTW, IMHO FWIW, I agree with the esteemed Mr. Brooks almost 100%. His assessment of BTS is correct for the southern tier with similar growing conditions of H & H. My one per cent write off involves seeing a fairly decent stalk of BTS at our spring show this year. What a shock! Just a fluke.

Opening up a new can of worms, BOOGIE WOOGIE can be described as a BTS type and certainly is not a Dykes contender as it performs here. Rockytop catalog has described BW as an IB, which is what it is here

Now back to MMOB.
