Dear all,

Not long ago Susan and I created an Aril Iris wiki page with pictures from 
John Lonsdale,  Jim McKenney, and Mark McDonough. It isn't nearly as fancy 
as the Aril International website, but it does have the link on it to the 
information John furnished a number of years ago to our group about his 
experiences growing these plants in Pennsylvania.…

Thanks about the answers to the rain question. It sounds like I'd have the 
same experience that Jane does. This year has been an outstanding year for 
Iris douglasiana however and Iris tenax I grew from NARGS seed is really 
pleasing me too. I expect there are Irises for all of us since the genus is 
such a large one. It's just a matter of figuring out what will grow in your 
climate. I keep hoping some year to see Carolyn's garden when it is in 
bloom. There were wonderful displays when I lived in Stockton of bearded 
Irises I remember well. They are not a good choice for where I live now 
however. They don't bloom well at all.
