Re: Species irises

In a message to Lloyd, I said "This interested is stimulated by the 
relatively low interest in species by others in the group."

I made this statement to reflect the relative balance of interest as shown 
in the messages that flash by each day, not as a criticism of the group!  
Sorry if some people were offended.  I appreciate the very high intensity 
interest in breeding TB and others, it is my nature to be more interested in 
the natural world and to wish to know more about the source of some of our 
garden plants, etc.  

Again, no offense was intended!  I would, however, like to see everyone 
become really knowledgeable about the irises that occur within 100 miles of 
their own gardens.  I have already discovered a most interesting problem 
with virginica-versicolor near Ottawa and will be seeking more information 
in the field next summer.  I'll report back.
