Also a few I. psuedata. This name may be new to some of you. It is a hybrid of I pseudacorus x I ensata. Modern hybrids are far superior to older attempts and have large flowers in a range of colors and patterns. And they are sterile so unlike the pseudacorus parent do not seed about wildly. Recommended for pond or well watered garden spot. Check out Draycott Gardens for some pix http://www.draycott-gardens.com/psframe.html I don't think there are any pix on the PBS wiki yet. Best Jim W.
