Four years ago I was given some iris rhizomes from a lady's garden. She died. Wanting to keep her love of the earth alive for her family I have since given rhizomes to her grandson from my plantings. I continue to do this every year. It's amazing how maybe 6-8 rhizomes have provided such joy to so many people. The amazing thing about this is I have a very small plot and I'm truly overwhelmed that they have survived like they have.
