Yes, about half. The digging at guest gardens
began in June, irises began to arrive in flat-bed truck loads, some trimmed,
some not, and after volunteers finished trimming and labeling, we sorted by year
and hybridizer, so that varieties could be brought together. That
way we could identify those which needed to be held back and
returned. Irises were then selected from all remaining hybridizers,
years and varieties (the huge assortment) to make large collections which
went to our societies in Region 14. Kitty
Sadly thats what,about half?
We've been discussing convention irises on
iris-talk, and I wanted to post these pictures showing the magnitude of work
managing irises after a National convention so that everyone can
see. I'll put my comments back over on iris-talk.
