Well Linda this is difficult here in "
The Land Where Iris Grow" <G>
As you can see in the photo below 2 year
clumps all grow together.
With 7 to 20 stalks in a clump bloom
stalks are hard to separate.
I took the photo below for Walter
Moores. From right to left front row:
Patrol-Chocolate Chess-Violet Shimmer-Follow the Fleet- Color
The following week was prime week. The
rows behind are MTBs and IBs.
All are two year clumps
I have quite a few clump shots of the
IB's and MTB's with up to 50 fans
These beds had awesome growth. I
think ( not a fact) that whomever
fertilized the grass did the iris also.
We also had way above average
rain those two years. As I remember we
had about 4 times that we went
3 days with out rain. Also hot and
humid. Lost one iris to
rot the first year.
We had some rot when it was time to dig.
218 iris planted.
Three lost to rot
One lost to scorch ( confirmed be Roy
After shipping some back two heaping
pickup loads were planted in
Our iris club folded the year before the
meeting. About 8 of the members
put it on because we had committed to do
it. The original Chair's husband
had serious health problems. John Bruce
I was making crosses 7 days before the meeting. I had chest pains and
ended up having a stint put in the next day. I was making crosses the day
after that. They found I had a
Abdominal Aorta Amorism when putting
stint in. I was not allowed
to-do any heavy work till it was
fixed. That was the
end of July before I could. Went
in the hospital Monday came home that night.
Went out to supper Wednesday night.
So John and his wife dug 3 of the four
I did some labeling.
Isn't modern medicine
