Dear Rick,

When I was living in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas we did not have
enough cold to germinate iris seed.  I stratified mine as mentioned earlier
and the seed germinated as thick as hair on a dog's back!

<<I failed to mention in my previous posting that I did stratify the
seeds.  They still will not germinate by doing this.  Out of about 20
fall crosses I got about 6 seedlings...total.  Holding pots over this
winter and hopefully I will get some more germination this spring.
