Welcome, Peter.

This is really the place to be to discuss irises of all sorts. There is, I 
believe, a list which is concerned exclusively with Siberians, and another 
which is concerned with Louisianas, but we are the sole arena in which to 
discuss irises of any kind, including Siberians and Louisianas, as well as 
Japanese irises, Arils and arilbred irises, Spurias, Pacific Coast irises, 
Junos, and any Iris species.

This list includes people from all over the North American continent, as well 
as some from abroad. Necessarily we must grow what can be grown where we find 
ourselves, but we are always interested in learning about and discussing 
irises of more narrow growing requirements. As Kathy Guest noted in another 
context, we'd love to hear more about exotic irises. 
Which Iris species are of paramount interest to you at this time? And would 
you be inclined to offer us a list of perhaps two dozen irises of any age or 
kind which have proven to be good garden plants for you according to your own 
definition? We are in the process of a highly informal and subjective little 
survey in which we are sharing some information about this subject. My friend 
Donald Eaves in Texas is keeping some records and informs me that over sixty 
of the list members have offered information. We would very much like to hear 
from more of our members abroad.

We are happy you are among us and we would be delighted to have your thoughts 
on any Iris subject that interests you.
