	No mention has been made of Iris cretensis. This is closer to 
I unguiculares, but has very fine foliage. Both species occur in some 
of the same locations such as Crete. So if anyone is travelling there 
(Tom !) it might be very interesting to look out for possible natural 
hybrids. I. lazica has a disjunct distribution from I unguiculares.

	I don't grow this, but it is said to be as hardy/tender as
