Utah and Nebraska... quite cold areas.
No wonder What again and Sapphire Jewels are happy here.
Loads of chicken have been running for years on the premices, it's much too rich and i will also put loads of lime next winter.
I have an invasion of horse tail, and i've been told lime was the only way to get rid of it.
So i've got 2 reasons to get started!

Loic, Melba Hamblen hybridized in Roy, Utah.  Allan Ensminger lived in Lincoln Nebraska.  I know next to nothing about soil condition in those areas.  Robin could tell you. 
This has nothing to do with your seedling or your point, but most Hamblen iris, and some of their descendants, do not grow well for me in KY.  According to my local county agent, reclaimed cow pastures in this region tend to be more acid than the average.  In early spring I enjoy watching the farmer across the road.  The fields designated for row crop are limed heavily.  I grew up in farm country and I tip my hat to this man.  He is VERY good.  But I stray from the point.  If he needs to lime, I need to lime, adjusted to fit the crop.
