Re: My first rot

Be brave Amy, let it die - it will leave a place to try something stronger
next year...maybe Clarence's REMINISCENCE, which is growing like a weedy
monster here. 

I guess philosophies just differ on that, Amy, because I say, "Go get 
that bleach and give it a dose, a good one."  I've inherited the 
blood of my Dutch ancestors who would turn over in their graves if I 
let something die for which I'd paid my good money.  If I like it, 
it's worth a little extra effort, especially an iris!  I know it may 
be a yearly battle to keep dosing the plant, but I'm too tight to 
give up without a fight!
