CULT: About the List Survey - Again

From: HIPSource@aol.com


I am sending this information along to reach anyone who missed it a week ago.

This post is for those of you who may have been briskly deleting what you 
thought would be of no interest, or for those of you who have gotten lost in 
the flurry of excited posts on several different but related topics under 
discussion at this time, or for those who are undecided about whether 
participating in this project is the best use of your valuable time.  

For the last couple of days we have been conducting an informal survey. We 
have been sharing lists of a couple of dozen irises of any age and kind which 
have proven to be exceptionally satisfying plants in our gardens. Quite a few 
people have contributed from diverse regions, and I believe we have learned 
some interesting things. Some folks post only a few names, some many. Each 
list is valuable in itself, and as part of the larger picture.

It could be said that this is a broad-based grass-roots documention of good 
garden irises at the end of the first full century of hybridizing. It 
unquestionably is the voice of experience, telling it like it is. The more 
people we hear from, the more we know.

We are sure there must be irises in your garden which you consider to be 
superior garden plants. We hope you will take a few minutes to share a list 
of them with us, along with some brief remarks on your growing conditions.
