SPEC: Iris japonica hybrid

From: Dennis Kramb <dkramb@badbear.com>

I have a relatively uninteresting observation to share with y'all.

I've been growing some I. japonica hybrids for over a year now, and until a
few weeks ago I kept them on my back patio.  They were in full shade all
day long because my patio is on the north side of my house.

Well I wanted to reclaim my patio so I moved all my potted plants out into
the back yard underneath a big maple tree.  Almost overnight THE SLUGS

I was amazed that in a year I never had slug damage to my irises.  But when
I moved the containers out into the yard, the slugs found them.
Anyway....the damage isn't really that bad (I just enjoy being
melodramatic)...so I'm going to keep them back there underneath the maple
