Neil, could you put that essay you put on Iris Talk, “Getting it Straight for the Simple Minded”, on this forum?  I get Iris-talk in digest form, so I can’t copy it without copying reams of paper.  It is one I would like to go over more than once to get it all into my simple mind.


About Fogbound:  I have tried to get pods using Fogbound for two straight years.  This year I finally got one, Pond Lily X Fogbound.  Pond Lily sets with most anything for me.  I wish some of my other crosses with Fogbound would take.

I made the cross both directions, and have been wonderfully rewarded for my
efforts.  The R 19 cross, Power Woman X Fogbound, is I think somewhat better
in quality than the R 14 set which has Fogbound as the pod parent, but both
have seedlings that are wonderful garden subjects.

The article in the April AIS *Bulletin* has an article on "The Fogbound
Effect" by Silvain Ruaud on p. 89.  I couldn't agree more with the author
about the extraordinary quality as a parent this Keppel iris has.  It is
becoming increasingly apparent that this is one of the all-time great
"benchmarks" in iris development, joining the ranks of such irises as SNOW
FLURRY, PINK TAFFETA and a few others one encounters again and again in
quality pedigrees.
