Is anyone else having trouble getting through the link to the wiki site that Lori posted? Confused I'm wondering if it's related to the changes Dave is making or something with my computer.

Thanks for your responses everyone! I posted a note telling Dave about the problem...but also telling him this is a minor issue. I figure Dave's probably got his hands full with more important issues right now. Sticking tongue out

Lori added a period at the end of the link, that's why it doesn't work.
Always look at the URL, if it's connected to a comma, period or another word in any way it breaks the link.

Thanks Suzanne! We don't say it enough, but you and Kent are so helpful...our experience on this forum would not be anywhere near as great if you two were not there in the background working to keep things running smoothly and to help us when we need it! Thank You! I tip my hat to you. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

*Blush* I tip my hat to you. Aww, you guys, I appreciate it! But it's everyone on here that keeps the interest going with bloom shots and trades and stories, that's what makes it fun for me, even if you all make it hard for me to keep up!

DaveinPA said:Lori,
Will confirm both clumps when they hopefully bloom. I put your name in the file next to Lodestar, a neat looking one.
Thumb of 2016-04-20/DaveinPA/9b7d99



Would you say that this iris is a TB rather than the IB or MTD that I would expect with an iris with that coloring? A large bloom or smallish? The reason I question this is Whiting had a Lodestone which if you know "what" that is you could loosely define a heavily veined flower as such I suppose. Just a thought, don't get rid of it. Confused

It would be a TB (an historic iris). All plants advertised by Whiting would now be historics.

I would be happy to keep growing all irises, but they have to cooperate!
