Good morning everyone.

Just a note of thanks to all who suggested the problem with this iris 
is scorch.  It looked somewhat like the pics from the link that El C. 
sent except that all the orangey/yellow foliage was still standing 
tall.  Given time I expect it would have fallen over, too.  I had 
originally thought of scorch when I saw what was happening to it but 
the healthy appearing roots threw me off.  I will now keep an eye on 
it to see if the roots remain healthy.  Because it is a favorite of 
mine, I will keep it and see what it does next year.  I, too, was 
under the impression that scorch was a problem only for more southern 
growers but I guess not since this experience.  Now, if I ever see an 
iris borer I think I'll move to Alaska!  <bg>
