Dear Mark,
	Glad to see another praise of Junos and their 'show' ability. 
They can make quite an impact in masses like these. Your ultra 
vigorous I . vicaria matches my I. willmottiana. We ought to trade a 
few of these 'weeds'.

	And if you like 'Warlsind', you must get 'Sindpers', the 
reverse cross. I got mine from Jane McGary and it is a knock out.

		Best		Jim W.  where the aril-bred irises 
are just starting their dazzle.
