Dear Jana/Mary Sue and all;
	So common in China that it's common name is simply  "Iris". 
This is a typical Iris tectorum. Although commonly known in the US as 
Japanese Roof Iris, it is neither native to Japan or typically found 
on roofs.

	It is a crested Iris (Lophiris) easy from seed and also 
available in a lovely white form. Widely adaptable and may grow in 
shade and sun in a variety of climates. In bloom ere now, too.

	Best		Jim W.
