<< How is this modified (?) or whatever when people report varying hues or
 tints of the same iris in different regions and/or soils? I really am
 only partially awake folks but I've been wanting to ask that question for
 several days now! 
     As usual, Sharon provides a better answer than I ever could...and it 
partially answers the question why I can't quite find the same amazing color 
or azure blue iris my mom had in her garden, quite possibly her ph or other 
soil factors were just too different in NJ from my SC sandy/acid soil.    I 
also think that even amendments won't duplicate it precisely so I'll have to 
be content with the memory of that glorious color from my childhood.
