Greetings, JCricket!

I believe the problem you're having posting messages is in the address you
are using.  It should be  iris-l.    " L " as in "list."  The rest looks OK!

I am sending a copy of this to the list, in hopes that folks with climates
more similar to yours may know more about your no-bloom problem.

I do know of 2 iris folks in your area that have a commercial garden, and may
be of considerable help.  Are you familiar with Shepard Iris Garden?  It's
run by Don and Bobbie Shepard, 3342 W. Orangewood, Phoenix  85051-7453.  I'd
suggest paying them a visit, or giving them a call.  Good Luck!
