If you want to grow beautiful, healthy roses but think it's too difficult, then this is a program you won't want to miss. Keynote speaker, Paul Zimmerman, in his presentation, Roses are Plants, too: A Guide to Sustainable Gardening, will tell all about practices that keep your garden roses and companion plants healthy and beautiful, without using synthetic chemicals.

Loretta, I posted photos of that Iris on the Iris forum and several points were made:
1. What Again is a Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris, supposedly 10" tall, but my mystery Iris blooms at 18 to 22",
2. In most photos, standards of 'What Again' are much darker than mine.
3. The margins of the falls of 'What Again' are edged in lavender/purple while on mine the margins are white.
Any insight you might have on this matter will be appreciated.

I got the slat planters at the Philadelphia Flower Show. They sell them online (www.slatstuff.com), but the price at the show was a show special - I got two for the price of one. They are designed to hold standard 4", 6", and 8" terra cotta pots, but I wanted to use purple and couldn't find any in 4", so the top tier has 6" pots, as does the middle tier, but the ones in the top tier won't fit down in the hole. The wood comes in the dark wood, which I got, and a lighter oak stain color.

@aspenhill, that Lady Banks Rose is lovely. I've been thinking about getting one myself. How did it do over the winter? Did all the leaves drop?
