Amen.  Then I could actually use the award system to help me select
irises to grow instead of having to spend all this time playing roulette
with the R & I books, trying to guess if a cultivar will survive and/or
bloom here.  A picture tells a lot about what the flower looks like and
there are several catalogs with those, and shows are a great place to
see flowers, but there is no way at all to tell from catalogs or awards
anything about growth, other than it must grow really well somewhere. 
And it probably grows fast enough where it grows well to be commercially

hmm.  Sorry.  seems to have hit a nerve.
