Listers, All--

For me, there can be a big difference between my favorite irises and those 
that grow well here or anywhere. If giving a list of my FAVORITE irises, I 
would not guarantee they would grow well in any area, my own included.  I am, 
alas, easily attracted to a pretty face!  In addition, I have color and form 
preferences.  (I still think ORANGE STAR is one of the prettiest irises I've 
ever seen, unfortunately, it didn't/doesn't grow well much of anywhere--and 
how about that PROUD TRADITION?).  

Also, I am swayed by what is blooming.  For instance, I'm currently in love 
with RETURNING CHAMELEON (Outstanding!) and a couple of seedlings. 

But mainly, I like bitone blues (the first iris I saw as a mere teenager was 
this color combination), oranges, variegates, and deep tones of black, red, 
and brown.  I would throw in a token vote for a few others like VANITY, 
SKATING PARTY & LACED COTTON.  Oh, gee!  There I go again.  Lead astray by 
pretty faces!  Did I mention EN GARDE & PRETTY WOMAN?

(who will probably do an entire list of favorites if someone doesn't stop me)!
