Re: CULT:Ugly Irises

Lets see now. Walta listed maybe 10 iris (ain't going back and count). Other 
folks so far added another half dozen. That would be 16 divided by about 
30,000 registrations.
So......  the probability that any given iris is deemed ugly by anyone is 
5/100 ths of one percent. In the future instead of saying there are no ugly 
iris, I think I'll start saying, "the probability of an iris being ugly is 

Of the iris mentioned I only grow Thornbird and Fogbound. Like the plant 
habits of both. Fogbound explodes in blooms. Thornbird failed to bloom this 
year (kind of a relief).

The absense of photos of those on Walter's list lends credibility to his 
choices. Who includes ugly pictures in their web offerings? Who post pictures 
of ugly irises? Who would print them in a catalog? Who waste hard drive space 
storing them?

Who, Who, Who? Hmmm....... how bout Owl Droppings as a name for my seedlings?
