--- In iris-talk@y..., "Jeff and Carolyn Walters" <jcwalters@b...> 
"...vigorous and floriferous...which unfortunately does not seem to 
be true of WILD WINGS (Keppel, 1999...."

WILD WINGS on a one year clump here has seven increases, bloomed 
normally despite frosts that got most of the bloom in the adjacent 
clumps, and has vigorous, attractive foliage.  I couldn't ask for 
better performance--so far!  One year, however isn't much of a test.  
Just--"So far, so good."  Your comment is noted, however, since I 
assume you've had WW longer than one season.

On the matter of pink colors and JUNE MEREDITH, I saw Carryl Meyer's 
post commenting on COPPER as a nutrient for pinks deepening the 
color.  Hmmmmm....Utah and Montana have copper deposits. Just out of 
curiosity, do you remember what all you had used in NJ as soil 
ammendments or fertilizer?  I have some Oregon-born pinks here that 
need a color boost.  They don't look like they do westward.

JUNE MEREDITH was definitely one of the more satisfying pink-pinks of 
Tell's line.  It did not have the color depth for me in Idaho that 
was portrayed on the cover of his catalog, however.  It is well 
represented in its progeny even if no longer commercially available.
