Okay, I looked at the photos of the various species and varieties.  
(And I think some of the Arils are amazing!)
But am I getting a subtle message that somehow the growing of Arils  
or Arilbreds and Junos bears some resemblance? Are they from the same  
or similar localities? And how does John Lonsdale manage to grow so  
many of these (difficult) Irises so well in not the ideal climate?  
Inquiring minds...

Maybe I'll try just one or two.....?   ;-)
