Hello Iris Listers! I need to hear pros and cons -
Its the color of Aaron's Rod in Sutton's recently arrived catalog, and as
large. It is in full glorious bloom this moment, with two more buds to
follow tomorrow and the next day. Its growing 2' from the pavement on a
major artery from downtown to the west side, in an apex of soil where a
huge concrete apron rises from the pavement to the underside of an
Interstate bridge. Ergo - its city or State highway property.
Just the one plant, so its not a large clump left to grow large from some
farm homestead eliminated by the interstate 10 years ago. Maybe someone
tossed a rhizome out a window as their car passed by, possibly it fell off
a load being taken to the city's dump for garden waste, leaves, branches,
etc. Haven't a clue why an obviously modern iris is growing along side the
Its only danger is someone ELSE with a shovel - can't claim its threatened
by its current habitat, its doing fine. Not necessarily an unusual color
for an iris - may never know its name - not likely to have any value to
some folk other than its own beauty. What would you do? Rescue it or
