Re: good iris description

What is the ideal ratio of bloom stalks to increase?  1:1?  More stalks
than increase?  More increase than stalks?

Amy -- each increase produces next year's stalks, how many do you want next 
year? Do you want increases to make more rhizomes to sell?  Do you want
the cultivar to clump up fast or slowly? Which "ideal" gardener are you?
A commercial venture needing many for commerce or neat and tidy home 
gardener, or adventurous competitor of AIS shows??

The answer to your question depends on what you want as an individual and
your purposes for growing iris.
