Thanks. This was an excellent primer! And thanks also for the links; 
those will be helpful too.

When you said the "Dutch" type of Iris was a more complex variety, what 
did you mean. I'm interested because although I now know that these are 
not all that easy to keep growing in a lot of places, the ordinary 
"store-bought" mixture I planted at my parents' house in Central Texas 
almost 20 years ago has naturalized and continued to spread and thrive 
in huge clumps that bloom every spring for my mother. So I'm interested 
in their probable origins (species and locations).
