Idaho assures me that it grew tall in Lucille Pinkston's (the 
hybridizer's) garden.<

I am ordering O.DESERT this year to test it out (so to speak) in Zone 
3 as to height. It was blooming short in Oklahoma and Dallas so north 
it must come. 

Rosalie said she has only 6 irises blooming now. We haven't reached 
peak for TBs or Siberians. CONFEDERATE ROYALTY and LEMON CHESS opened 
today along with another 10 IBs and a few BBs. BERRY RICH (BB) from 
the Craigs is luscious and the MTBs are stealing the show this year 
with FESTIVE GLOW from the Willotts being the star. REFORMATION (IB) 
from the Craigs is loaded with bloomstalks ditto with their MTB, 

But the favorite so far is MISS MAUVE (IB) hybridized by Rick Tasco 
and I keep coming back to it - the color is so distinct AND it is 
vigorous and has multiple bloomstalks on a first-year plant. Usually 
it takes at least 2 years to see any bloom even on a Median. Siberians 
and TBs usually take 3 years. The bloom is excellent this year even 
considering we had snow on the ground a scant 6 weeks ago and the 
flowers must have had to go into overdrive.
