Linda, we don't have any stalk rot here, too dry, but Celebration Song is the most rhizome rot prone iris I have.  It just won't set pods, but its pollen is very fertile on almost everything.  My beautiful orchid, 21-15 A, has all its bad habits, so I will never introduce it.  I am trying to make crosses with 21-15-A that will retain its color but eliminate its problems.  I have it crossed onto Silverado, Appleblossom Days and Magical Encounter.  I meant to cross it onto Ruffled Goddess but didn't get around to it.  I'll try that another year.  So far, the lovely lavender amoena sibling doesn't show those tendencies.  I have hope.
Did you get your pretty seedling sent to the convention gardens?

  Thanks for the reminders on stripping podded stalks - something I
  learned here a few years back.  It seems to help on some cultivars more
  than others.

  As for the other questions:
  -    Anybody ever see pollen on IMMORTALITY?
  -    Others have as much trouble keeping its pods from rotting?

  CELEBRATION SONG is another one - if anything, it is even worse about
  rotting pods - they rot BEFORE they start to plump, taking the upper
  stalk along.  How I ever got seedlings from this cross is a
  mystery...most of the kids are following in mom & dad's path -
  impossible to get pods.  Keeping my fingers crossed that this problem
  with the seedlings is partly weather related - another 1.5 inches of
  rain in storms the other day.  But it has been a problem with
  IMMORTALITY every year.  Frustrating....
