Subject: [iris-photos] RE: Perfumed
The plant used for perfume is actually Iris pallida and it is
grown mostly in northern parts of Italy. It is located all over
the place in Italy as a wild, induced species much the way we have ditch
daylillies here. Ther are a number of scientific studies on the special
chemical properties of this rhizome. This is not one of the variagated
plants that we see so often in commerce in North America.
