>     Hello!
>     I am new to this group, and new to the wonderful world of iris 
>     growing.  I have a beginner's question:
>     I have a nice sunny (partial afternoon shade), well drained slope in 
>     my yard in Northern Virginia.  I'd like to plant an iris which will 
>     spread, but which will remain low so as not to block the very low 
>     windows of my house.
>     I just received a White Flower Farm catalog and saw a bulb called I. 
>     reticulata "Harmony" which is only 6 inches tall and seems to meet my 
>     growing conditions.  Has anybody tried this?  Any comments?  I was 
>     unaware that there were irises which grew from bulbs.  Any 
>     advantage/disadvantage to bulbs, rather than rhizomes?  (or is this 
>     considered an "imitation" iris?)
>     I'd love to hear any other recommendations for a nice, easy to grow, 
>     low (up to 15" or so) iris.  Meanwhile, I'll keep soaking up all the 
>     wonderful news and info you send out!
>     Thank you!!
