Ditto, and maybe the AIS could design a standard reporting form. (and

While we are here, next year will be the first year that I will be
making notes on what goes on in my iris garden. So what are the
important things to note? My first cut.

When it blooms
Number of branches
Number of buds
Number of increases
Percentage of increases that bloom
How long the blooms last
Quality of the flower
Quality of the foliage
Resistance to rot
Unusual characteristics (like ridges on the leaves, stalks that fall

I am sure that there are lots of things I forgot,
