Dear Dennis,
	I almost mentioned this iris, Iris 'Flavescens' 
( in my list of old 
homestead bulbs as I have seen this in places along the roads in KS, 
along an old cemetery and sometimes just scattered.

	The color is more true in Denis' pic with a hint of grey to 
the pale yellow.

	Regardless of the species sounding name, it is a cultivar of 
collected, probably hybrid, origin.

	Old, sturdy and long lasting.		Jim W.
