Re: Re: HYB: Using good plants

Juri, these were all bred in California or Oregon, two states that are not
cold where the irises were hybridized.  They are cloudy, though! :-)

HD quickly made a clump the first year, and in the spring every fan but one
bloomed.  The next year it rested and started increasing again.  The third
year, it bloomed-out totally and did not increase from the bloomstalks.  It
was dead, and I did not replace it.  The others died without blooming.  Two
were sent as 'bald rhizomes' (showing no increase) and died over the winter. 
I received replacements on three of these, and again, they did not survive the

Others locally have reported similar experiences, but HD has settled down in a
garden or two around here.  It must be like BEST BET.  BB would bloom out, but
finally one person around here got it to settle down and shared his increase
