I wrote an article for SIGNA last year about an "iris hunting" trip where I 
found a fabulous population of Iris cristata blooming amongst Aquilegia 
canadensis and Cypripedium sp. in southern Ohio.  It was just a one-page 
article, but I included lots of great photos.  My favorite was a flower 
that had falls that actually drooped rather than flare outwards.  It 
reminded me of a dwarf Iris tectorum.

Anyway, being in SIGNA I know quite a few folks growing (and selling) 
modern cultivars of Iris cristata.  I'll see if I can stir up any support 
for your RGQ issue.  If you want to use any of my photos, I'll be happy to 
share them.
