Well, I now have several clumps of versicolor & virginica varieties (one
huge clump kindly donated by Jim Wilson of IRIS-L) amongst my beardeds.
I'll take careful notes to see what happens...and to try to determine
which they like best. (Not that I *want* borers, but I gather that I'm
a fool not to expect it living where I live.)
