JAN ELIZABETH (Tell Muhlestein, 1959) TB historic

This is an exceptionally meaningful and important iris in my garden.  She 
carries the name of my next older sister, Janet Elizabeth, who died of 
SIDS at 6 mos of age a couple years before my birth.  I have always 
missed having Janet as a physical presence in my life, and now she grows 
in my garden.  I also grow LAURIE, and they both bloomed this year.  The 
parallels amaze me. JE was introduced into the world a few years before 
LAURIE, LAURIE didn't start blooming until right after JE had finished, 
and JE has grown very little in her first year (unlike LAURIE, who is far 
more vigorous).  It will break my heart if JAN ELIZABETH cannot thrive in 
my garden, but if it is her destiny to make only a brief return into our 
family every 50 yrs, so be it.  It was such a joy to finally be able to 
put a face to my sister's name.
