Groan - if she hadn't already bitten off <way> more than she can chew
already.  Grateful for pods starting to rot off...

But Neil makes a really good point - some of these tough old critters
can be used with modern "fancy" irises to jump decades of development.
Nothing likely to be worth introducing in the first generation, but
possibly the second, and certainly possible by the third.

Not positive of this, but I think I remember hearing that RAMESES is a
probably source of rebloom in some/many?? lines of TBs.

RAMESES was one of my stalwart irises here back when we had "normal"
weather, but it has been fading away in recent years, and am not even
sure it's still out there.  Been moving on to tougher, more disease
resistant things <g>

<Linda Mann would be a likely one to jump at a chance to
                   try breeding with it in her (and my) difficult
climates and soils.
