SANTIAGO: (Joseph Ghio, R. 1989). Sdlg. 85-40K3. TB 36" (91 cm) L-VL. "Deep red orange; tangerine beard. 83-88N, Stratagem sib, X Guadalajara., Bay View 1990. HM 1994". I am reluctant to rate any iris as neutral or negative. Even with extra care, I've had some trouble with winter rot in the rhizomes of this cultivar (and other orange irises), especially when there is lack of snow cover and temperatures dip to the sub-teens. Being an avid collector I don't mind a challenge; and this iris has been one! However, I still give it a favorable rating because I feel its good qualities outweigh its poor ones.
