Re: TB: REB: Byers Irises.

I know this is not the info Mark was asking for but I just wanted to make a 
comment.  I was out looking around my iris beds yesterday and noticed that 
the most vigorous healthy clumps were Monty Byers' introductions.  
Reincarnation, Godsend, Egyptian, Thornbird, and Conjuration are all 
EXCEPTIONAL growers here, standing out amongst the rest.  The only other iris 
that compares in vigor is Local Color (Keppel, 1996).  Most of my other 
irises seem to be average growers but these varieties are really putting out 
the growth and their leaves are taller and broader than any others out there 
right now.  I think I will look at add more Byers irises to my garden as they 
seem to perform very well here.  I guess Mesmerizer should be on my list of 
gotta gets....
