If HELLO DARKNESS dosen't perform for you may want to try another
Schriener iris which was my top pick of the blacks this year.  BLACK TIE
AFFAIR.  To me this iris was superior to Hello Darkness.  Tall stalks,
plenty of buds and even some ruffles.  I used it extensively while
hybridizing.  Don't know how it will perform for you, but you won't know
unless you try.
