Re: HYB: multiple stalks?

  Here is a good photo showing multiple stalks, branching.  This base branching usually begins about 1"-2" above the rhizome.  We also have some seedlings which do put up additional stalks from the mother rhizome adjacent to the main stalk.  This iris is only 25" tall.  Note the S curved main stalk which allows for separation of blooms. However, when you have multiple stalks, the blooms can often interfere with each other. That's why it is essential to remove that extra stalk when showing the iris.
