So, do we know any other bearded irises with PBF which are notably weak  
growers with scant increase and undependable bloom? Other than I.  variegata the 
species in some climates? I thought we had arrived at a  working hypothesis 
that presence of PBF was indicative of a strong,  and generally hardy, iris. 
Could it be that only robust plants of  a PBF cultivar express the PBF? Just 
thinking aloud here.
