[PHOTO] PBF, niche markets and the high cost of leaf spot

A floral designer of some renown visited here a day or two ago. You know of 
course, stealin' weed blooms is one of their avocations. She went ape when 
she saw this iris (photo attached). She said she could sell 30 or 40 of these 
if I could get rid of those spots on the leaves. She wanted them for "living 
plant" arrangements with fuchsia verbena and moss mounded shallow dishes. 
Said she wanted them for hospital patients and would pay well for them at 
this stage of growth (five or ten dollars each).

Ain't no doubt here any more that PBF has some market appeal. Even if it is a 
niche market. Course the poor girl did not know hybridizers are optimist and 
there is not enough money to buy an unbloomed seedlin'. Now, after they bloom 
is a horse of a different color. But I shore nuff reckon ole Lazy Bill will 
be sprayin' seedlings some next year! Why that's more than you can sell a 
good iris for!
