You brought a question to mind.  What are the xpardancanda's called now?  Iris x norrisii?   This past week I was in Atlanta and saw a 6' tall bright yellow flowered form of I. domestica.  Have you or anyone ever seen yellow-flowered plants this tall?

Dear PBSers,

        There's an interesting new blog on Summer iris referring to I domestica (aka Belamcanda) and I dichotoma. You might find some earlier entries of interest too:
