Re: Repeat flowering/everblooming (?) TBs

Robert Swieca mentions...

This is shameless pandering to a special interest...however, I have no
shame where that interest is concerned so here goes:

CRIMSON KING (Barr 1893) is a nearly ever-bloomer in climates such as
yours. It is a beautiful, rich, red-purple self of decidedly old (doggy!)
form, however it is a landscape iris beyond compare. It will grow and
flower in cracks in concrete ;-) and uses roundup for fertilizer.

It is widely sold and in the archives of this list is a posting of
suppliers of older iris. You can also find that list on the HIPS web page:
