Francis and Ruth are still maintaining
their Iris garden. They received Iris rhizomes as a wedding gift and the rest
is history. Now two of their three girls are involved with their own gardens
and so is one son in law. The other helps but one really enjoys the garden.

Subject: [iris-photos] thanks
to all of you for the congratulations. This was my first show
I was thrilled with the wins. Barbara Null won Queen of Show with Electric
She had some great looking Louisiana iris at the show too..
hope all you will look into Francis Roger's iris. If you don't know, then look
up Masai Warrior, Cajun Cooking, Halo Everybody,Katie Girl..those are just a
start. I hope I am correct on age but I think Mr Rogers is about 83 this year.
He is still working in the beds as far as I know. You can go to Google and type
in Francis Rogers iris and I think it will show you some articles on him and
his wonderful wife, Ruth.
encourage you all to at least check them out. You can phone them for a catalog
or email them. If you need those numbers or email addy, contact myself or Char.
again to all of you..and most of all to Francis Rogers.
