I use a general purpose program, Microsoft Works, to keep track of my
irises. Using the "data base" part of this program, you can set up a
record for each cultivar and then define "fields" such as name, type,
bloomtime, height, etc. After you get your iris data base all set up. you
can print out the whole thing with one iris per line, or select just part
to print out, such as all the "SIB"s.
MS works has a lot of features in it, but the basic stuff is pretty
simple. The program is available most anywhere. We originally bought ours
through a catalog from a place called MicroWarehouse, 1720 Oak St.,
Lakewood, NJ 08701-5926 or 1-800-367-7080. (Prices seem pretty reasonable

where the fall foliage is just spectacular this year. Even we natives
are going around the countryside "leaf peeping."
