Dear Jane,
	It has been years since I have heard this name, but I grew a 
plant from (the name escapes me, but an ex board member of the NY Bot 
Garden) a decade or more ago. It is a 40 chromosome (Sino-) Siberian 
Iris; a hybrid involving I. bulleyana and something else.

	I think it originated in Canda or the UK. Like all such 40 
chrom siberians it succumbed to our alkaline environment, but I 
managed to keep it acid for a few years. Very striking.

	It may not be registered with AIS. 		best	Jim W.


	I think it is around, but I couldn't find a source with a quick search.

			Best		Jim W.
