While we're busy telling Mike Sutton how to spend his time <G>, what
pollen parent would be most likely to make eastern durable babies?  No
Dykes winners, but irises that 50 years from now, listers' grandchildren
will be pestering HIPS trying to ID the beautiful everblooming irises
that are in gardens all over the south?east.

remember, if it's making you mad & it's not about irises (more or less),
most of the rest of us don't want to listen in.  Most of us don't even
want to listen to 2/3 of the posts about irises - we hang in for the few
that interest us & to help others with questions when we have time.  &
to tell Mike what to hybridize :)
