All good photos, yet I am still looking for that cushion. Even so I may use one of these, since they are so nice. The project is a revision of Basic Iris Culture. Everyone recieves this when we join AIS. In preparation for Electronic Membership the publicatrions committe is preparing both an updated printed version and an electronic version. It is mentioned in the text that SDBs can form a cushion of bloom. I can remember seeing such clumps but amazingly I do not and no one else seems to have pictures of how an Iris performs as a garden plant. We all focus on the individual blooms for our photography. On the wiki and in presentations we might win over a few gardeners if they could see clumps and picture them in their gardens. Sometimes enthusiasts are the worst salesmen for the enthusiasm.

Bright colors in this little SDB. But it may not be a cushion effect.

Second i would like a photo of an MDB next to a quarter to show the very tiny size. I remember that the Spoons showed such a picture but I can not even finf their website tonight. You would have thought that i had too many glasses of wine but i can not even use that excuse. call me inept.
