Bud count is better than the branching, but I'm not sure those are 
areas I can really evaluate.  So many that I grow that are 
registered as having strong branching and high bud count never 
demonstrate either trait under my growing conditions.  This year 
BROADBAND was the only iris that had those.  But though it had them 
and had full sized blooms, the stalk was only about 14" high.  The 
overall effect wasn't satisfactory.  Sometimes those shorter stalks 
will stay in proportion so the TBs are in the IB class.  But
