Dear Dell et al;
	There is an interesting little book called 'Tulips and Irises 
of Iran and their Relatives". Originally published by the Botanical 
Institute of Iran, (__blacked out "Royal"_) Botanical Garden. This 
gives the characteristics of the two species U. trisphera and U. 
flava and one picture of the former. U trisphera from Khorassan has 
terra cotta flowers; U. flava from Kordestan has yellow flowers.
	The book has a wealth of bulbous plants to drool over.

	Anyone travel much to/from Iran?
