	Char,

	Mike Sutton was referring to the effects of the use of Roundup 
as a weed control on or near iris beds.

	Roundup 'conditions' vary with the season when the product is used and occur when
irises receive a direct hit or experience drift.  Of course, the 
'conditions' are serious.

	'Conditions' you will see now would be yellowing of leaves or if the plant received a good
dose of Roundup, yellowing, defoliation, and eventual death.

	Spring 'conditions' probably are the most disastrous.  Distorted 
blooms in weird shapes and forms.  Complete color changes....a 
dark violet can  turn out white when it blooms if Roundup was used 
nearby.   Distorted, gnarled leaves and the same with bloomstalks 
occur even with the slightest drift  when used before your bloom 
season.


	The AIS BULLETIN has had several articles over the years 
warning of Roundup's  possible side effects.


	I would use Roundup only after the spring bloom season and on 
a calm day.  Read and heed all the directions on the label.

	The use of chemicals in the garden, of course, is a 
controversial subject.  I think if you do an archival search using the 
terms roundup, drift, chemicals, you will find tons of information on 
this subject.
	
	Good luck!
