cemetary iris

This is the first non-arilbred that's bloomed here.  This was collected from 
the Thurber, Texas cemetary.  Thurber was a mining town near here and then a 
brick foundry, but it folded and disappeared decades ago.  The cemetary is 
in sections, the Italians, the eastern Europeans, the Americans, the blacks. 
With it's diverse cultures I wondered if the plant was going to be the same 
as the iris in the local cemetaries.  It's not.  It's shorter.  The heart 
and shoulders are white without the yellow or tan in the markings.  It's not 
as dark a purple.  The cemetary has thousands and thousands of rhizomes 
scattered throughout.  I don't know if they are all the same as this one. 
Many of them are in the mowers' path, which is done occasionally.
