Re: CULT:[iris] Bug Problem

This happens here a lot because of the erratic late winter/spring 
temperatures.  A hard freeze (lower 20s F) less than 6 or 8 weeks before 
TBs are due to bloom will kill the buds.  The stalks may continue to 
grow and look normal, sometimes producing what looks like they be 
flowers, but eventually the buds turn brown and either turn to mush or 
dry up.  resulting in 'blasted' buds.  They certainly are blasted!

My best guess is that's what's happening, and that the bugs are just 
there to eat the dead stuff.

What part of the country/world is this in?

Linda Mann east TN
