I just checked Hugh Stout's website, and he's posted four 2012 introductions along with his other iris introductions:

Lowell Baumunk: GIRL TROUBLE and HOWLING AT THE MOON

Michele Bersillon: COMME UN VOLCAN

Bob Van Liere: FRESH POWDER

Now the annual debate begins...do I get a few intros or more goodies that are a couple of years old? That might be a discussion later for a thread...fewer newer or some that have proven their worth. Confused Confused Confused Confused Confused

Ohhh Backdraft! Now, where the heck will I plant it? I went from one mixed bed of iris and other flowers last year, to two dedicated iris beds this summer - which are full.... ~Jan

You have Keppel catalogue already, Lucy? You stinker.

Oh, Jan, you know you never plant in anything but 3s. That's beds included, LOL.

I really like BACKDRAFT -- Hugh sent it as a gift plant two years ago, and it has very velvety falls.

By the way, has anyone perused their iris offerings? For those who might be interested, they have 7 plants of TOBACCO CHEW, that Burseen iris with the incredible beards!

That was taken at Keith Keppel's in 2010 -- what a great trip that was, even though it rained most of the time!

Those were my plastic Target boots, and boy did they pay off on that trip -- I don't think I've ever seen such sticky mud!

Came upstairs to the computer & found the Irid-ISM our clup newsletter on the e-mail. Just printed it out. It will not be available on the ISM web site right away, but for those who want to read back numbers, go to massirises.org.
