Re: SPEC: Crested Iris

From: "GeneBush" <genebush@otherside.com>

Hello Michael,
	Nothing unusual going on here. This is a pretty variable little Iris in
nature. Once in a while I run short of stock for the nursery and have to
order wholesale I. cristata from other regions. I always look for changes
in form or color when they bloom and occasionally hold one back for myself.
Color hue changes are very common. If you are addicted to catalogs as I am
you can see many of the wildflower nurseries will have several stable
cultivars to choose from. 
	I separate mine when they are found and pot them up individually in stock
pots and simply watch them for a few years to see if I am still as
appreciative next year as I was this or last. Right now I am watching 5 or
6 cultivars in the holding area.
	Enjoy your discoveries.
