Re: Nov 16 Rebloom Report/iris cllumps

<< what are your favorites for making old (more than 3 yrs) clumps? >>

Thought I would add two cents on this question.  The absolutely best tall
bearded iris for making tremendous clumps is the blue Dykes Medal winner
SHIPSHAPE.  What is so wonderful about this iris is that it will stay clumped
without dividing.  It just grows new rhizomes when the old rhizomes die out
in the center.  This is a great advantage for use in borders and in mixed
perennial beds...because one does not have to keep digging it up and
replanting it.  Wish there were more like it.  Clarence Mahan in VA
