Positive TBGDN On Feb 27, 2006, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

SPRING PARASOL: (Richard Ernst, R. 1993). Sdlg. F119A. TB 38" (97 cm) ML. "Ruffled, laced bright lavender pink, deeper veining, paler area at tip of light orange beard, slight tan shoulder infusion. Afternoon Delight X Gaulter 81-099, inv. Glendale., Cooley 1992. HM 1995" This information is taken directly from the American Iris Society's Check List data base. Although I rate this iris as a positive, it is somewhat less hardy in severe winters here in 5a/b. As with all plants (especially irises) I like to weigh all the pros and cons; and when (and IF) a plant decides to die or rot because of weather conditions, so be it- move on! This is my 10th year with this iris; it just needs a little extra 'TLC'.
