You know, Bill, it just could be that the
vogue disfavoring irises with branches emanating from low down on the main stalk
has to do not with their appearance in the garden, but with the difficulty of
exhibiting them at shows. If you've tried it, you know that the standard
"pipes" used in so many places won't work, and neither will the narrow vases
used most other places. When a container wide enough is found,
it's still very difficult to arrange the flower so that its garden grace is
replicated on the show bench. If someone finds a way to do that, please
tell me. I'll bring a couple of those troublesome critters to the
show. -- Griff

This photo is from a few days back. DS is now showing color. This is
a single stalk. The bud cout is nine or more though all do not show in the
photo. Contrary to current vogue I find myself wishing for more irises having
branchs that eminate from points low on the stalk. I do not often stick my
irises in a pipe but look at them each day.
