	No potent insights from this quarter, sorry.

	I do grow it and have for four years in Zone 3. It behaves like
	I. pumila in size, bloom habit and hardiness in cold climates so

	I guess I come down on Rick's side (except he is in CA not the
	White Mts.).

	In lieu of setting up a chromsosome counting lab in my garage
	(so jammed up with my gardening junk that my car has never seen
	the inside of same), I have no idea about the c. count of this
	little, early-blooming, reliable gem of an iris.
