Interesting that Carryl lists several irises on HER list that are almost 
impossible here - although we share similar winter weather (the climate that 
gets the bad press).

KILT LILT - is a famous 'challenge' of an iris, with lots of folks frustrated 
who try to keep a Dykes bed going

FANCY WOMAN - I have good luck with this one, but it's also got a rep as 
being tricky

QUEEN IN CALICO - an iris that I would love to grow - but it flat out refuses 
to get comfortable in the Guest gardens.  In fact, lots of the fancy plics 
are tempermental for me.

So I wonder if the common denominator is moisture.....  Colorado is pretty 
dry, I believe while we are pretty moist - year round.  Interesting that we 
can use these lists to draw conclusions about why we've triumphed or not with 
this iris or that.

And, FWIW - we had a drought this year on the east coast....  and my irises 
have never looked better!  Going into winter my foliage was still absolutely 
pristine and healthy - no sign of leaf spot or any of the other things that 
give irises a bad name.
