Hi, Bill  --  I may have praised HELEN COLLINGWOOD at some point, but I've never tried to produce any seedlings from it.  Not that it wouldn't be worth doing, but I just don't have an objective that would justify the probable number of years it would take to produce something introduceable.  I have a nice clump of it that has sat in full shade at one side of the driveway for years and blooms prolifically.  Its classic beauty is attested by the fact that "unsophisticated" guests to the garden always want some of it.  My last TB ended its bloom day before yesterday and I'm busy snapping off spent stalks.  I think I promised a followup on seed germination this year, so will get to that in another message on iris-talk.  --  Griff

I guess I shouldn't be so hard on this poor iris.

I continue to like this iris. It is trouble free and capable of increse under the harshest conditions here. Shaded, dry, packed driveway gravel.

Someone, Griff I think, posted some good lookin' seedlings sometime back from it.

As a point in passin', I've never seen a true HC that it did not have the purple streaks in the upper lip of the stigma. This has become the feature I most often use to seperate the true HC from the questionable imposters.

Prechate the photo.
