Kathryn or Bob or whoever, originally wrote this about I. uniflora: How
would I tell the difference between I. sanguinea and I. uniflora?  Are there
distinguishing features?  Is there somewhere that I can find a written
description?  The seeds that I have sent from an individual were listed as
the I uniflora var. caricina.  I will be e-mailing this individual in hopes
of finding out their source.
