Hi Patricia,

I have run the rhizome sales for our club for quite a few years now and 
have come to the conclusion that each variety will vary in size before 
blooming. Since this is a pretty common questions among the newer 
members when they want to donate to the sales and auctions, I give them 
this advise. When digging a clump of irises,  separate them and judge 
what it's blooming size is by the old, bloomed out rhizomes.

Anyone else have any good suggestions?
