Dear Alberto;

	I stupidly admit you are surely correct. Here in my cold 
climate I keep it from freezing, but they it has been outside down 
through temperatures as low as the high 30s F . Only when it is 
freezing do I bring it in to my 70 F room temperature. OK. It stays 
in now until......

	I have grown N. longifolia and whatever the common 'walking 
iris' is these days N. gracilis or N. northiana and under similar 
care they bloom reliably. This may just be a little more in need of 

	By the way this species is also google-able as N. coerulea.

	And.... the cv 'Regina' seems to be 'the' form available in 
commerce in the US. Anyone know the origin of this cv?

	Thanks again.		Jim W.
