Guess we're both members of the Clarence Mahan Admiration Society - we met
Clarence in a PA garden in '95, when he kindly explained that I. pseudacorus
could grow in a dry location once it was established (we had previously only
seen it growing in close proximity to water)! He's a perfect example of what
we've found true about most iris people - generous with their knowledge, if
not their rhizomes!

Yes, we know the feeling - from 15 Schreiner's package irises in 1992, to
over 400 in 1996! <:)
