My iris reticulata is in full and perfect bloom. My zone is a matter of debate. USDA says 7b, Sunset says 7, but that is for the entire town, which is on a hillside in the Sierras in California. My own experience for the two years that I have been here is that my microclimate is 8, even 9, since I am at the lowest elevation possible to still live in the town. It has not snowed at all this year so far, just rained. No frost evident, either. However, it is cold enough that oriental lilies vernalize, but I won't try tulips except for the species.

It is with great pleasure I write this announcement to inform you that we have a WINNER for the year 2003 International Bulb Society Membership Sweepstakes! And the winner is...

Drum role, please...

MS. CAROLYN CRAFT!

Please join me in congratulating Ms. Craft for her good fortune, and I wish to thank each of you for your interest in being a member of this Forum. Additionally, I would like to add how important it is to keep your e-mail address current in your User Profile. Ms. Craft was actually an alternate winner. The original winner was international but could not be reached.

Ms. Craft's membership, at her consent, will actually be with the Pacific Bulb Society for TWO years (a $40 value), is for the years 2004 and 2005 and will include many benefits too numerous to describe here. I encourage every flower bulb enthusiast to visit the Society web page and consider joining.

My family and I sincerely hope all had a safe and happy holiday season.

Best Wishes,

The Bulbmeister

Dear Aaron:

Our winter has been very strange here in Northwest Arkansas, Zone 6b. My Allium schubertii sent up leaves in November, and my Lycoris chinensis and L. longituba started sending up leaves beginning of January. All the Allium was frozen back later and the Lycoris leaf tips have suffered significant damage. Thankfully it is only the tips. Having 60 days in December and January does not help the winter dormant plants stay bedded down very well. My Galanthus elwesii came up earlier than expected, too. I know these aren't Iris, but I sure felt a need to discuss the other side of your topic. I hope your plants fair well the rest of the winter.
