Re: Re: CULT: TB: REB: Byers Irises.

Linda, I hope you don't kill MESMERIZER.  I'm having enough trouble trying to keep it alive.  When I dug the two year clump this fall, I found only a half dozen tiny rhizomes.  By the time I could replant them, they didn't have any fans at all.  I replanted them anyway, and they are starting to grow, so I'll have at least one more year to baby it.  My second clump, first year clump, doesn't look very thriving, but at least it didn't rot as half the other irises in that row did.  I hope it blooms because the flower is like a beautiful bridal gown.

  Thanks Mark - I haven't tried any of those - will add them to my wish
  list.  And I guess as a professed iris torturer, even tho I'm not all
  that excited about space age irises, I should see if I can kill
