Welcome to the list Ken. You (or anyone else on the list?) might be able to 
give me some information on I. schachtii. I have been given this plant by a 
friend who is most likely to be right about the name. However, it seems a 
lot smaller than I would have expected. The leaves are barely 1/2" at the 
base, and only about 3" long. It has 5 flower buds at present, and these 
look no bigger than any of my smaller dwarf bearded irises. The photo's and 
descriptions I have seen in books suggest that this plant should be somewhat 
bigger. (12" or so) I'm not sure if this means foliage growth or flower 
I will try and photograph it when it flowers.
Cheers, Jan Clark, in Australia, where spring is imminent, and the weeds are 
doing very well thankyou.
