Eugene, Sean et al, My immediate assumption on reading the original listing was that it was meaning Schizostylis coccinea (aka Hesperantha coccinea), but I wasn't sure if there actually WAS an Iris coccina I wasn't aware of (which was entirely possible). Does anyone know whether the Schizostylis/Hesperantha coccinea is known as Iris coccinea? Cheers. Paul T. Canberra, Australia - USDA Zone Equivalent approx. 8/9 Min winter temp -8 or -9°C.
