***Looks like you guys are hearing more from me than either you or I thought!!
I am a bit confused as how to this group works - I don't know anything about
mailing lists and such - newsgroups are what I am familar with.  If I am doing
something wrong here by replying to each of you individually, I sure hope
someone will let me know!!!  I feel bad about clogging everyone's mailbox up
with all my newbie stuff!!!  So, please flame me at your leisure - I am quite
used to that from the newsgroups, so I shall feel right at home. <G>

***Maybe he gave them to Sam McGredy?  Sam is on our newsgroup -
rec.gardens.roses.  Just kidding, Sam doesn't need any more roses!!  For those
who don't know, Sam is a famous rose hybridizer based in New Zealand - his
family has been in the rose business for generations, starting in Ireland.

***the reversals aren't the problem - the problem is winter hardiness!!!

And happy roseing/irising to you too.
