In response to the above comment by Bob Pries, I think Phil Ogilvie's theory
of "dabbling ducks" might apply,  at least with respect to DORTHEA K.
WILLIAMSON.  The "ROSE QUEEN" look-alike could be native to Kamchatka
peninsula, as forms of Iris ensata virtually identical to ROSE QUEEN have
been collected in the wild in Japan, and I. ensata is indigenous to some
areas of Siberia.  In areas near the Chesapeake Bay, i.e. Maryland, eastern
VA, where ducks and other water birds abound, DORTHEA K. WILLIAMSON, a very
hardy hybrid Hexagonae, is often found close to ponds and lakes.  Clarence
