I still use the traditional HIPS term of art, "Unknown," myself, Christian.
"A NOID" sounds like "annoyed" to me, and it also sounds cute. I don't have
much of a cute gene, as Kathy Guest once said of herself. Except for
kittens and babies and such.
I don't see any cold damage here so far, and the taller bearded stuff is
just showing color. There is more bloom than I expected given I divided later
than usual. It will be interesting to see if everything has all its parts, and
I did not protect any irises this spring. I did toss some Reemay over them
last December when temperatures fell far, and fast. My garden was a source of
much neighborhood mirth at that time. I had put coats --as in people
garments--on all the gardenias. Worked real well. Bundled them up with some twine,
put a paper bag over their heads, and buttoned them into their coats.
My white cristatas are in bloom and the white tectorums are almost so. The
clumps of Iris pallida in Richmond which were blooming in January are blooming
