Dear Friends,
	The newest bulletin of the American Iris Society arrived 
yesterday. There's a good article on the 'The Other Irids, Part II' 
dedicated to the genus Sisyrinchium.  The authors, Edmund and Rita 
Heaton, hold the National Collection in the UK.  A few native 'weedy' 
species can be grown here, but they claim the hardiest is S. 
palmifolium, a species I never heard of before.

	Can anyone comment on this species?

	I see that Plant Delights sells it and only gives hardiness to Zone 7.

	Anyone grow it in colder climates?

	Anyone have seed to share?

	I have to state that all other yellow flowered Sisyrinchium 
are not hardy here except for the borderline S. macrocarpum. 
Currently deceased.

		Thanks for info.		Jim W.
