Kew Science

In reading alpine-l there was a reference made to a Helleborus picture
at the Kew Science website and next to that some information on irises. 
I quote:-

Iris Research

About half of Kews 857 accessions of Iris are grown in the Melon Yard.
Species and hybrids of the reticulata group are currently the subject
of detailed chromosome and molecular analyses. This work is shedding new
light on the systematic delimitation of the group and the parentage of
the 30 highly attractive cultivars, some of which are difficult to name
because of subtle colour variation.

Natural source Iris danfordiae. Those who know only the large,
commercial triploid
form of this Turkish endemic will be interested in the tiny scented
flowers of the wild diploid, which is difficult to cultivate.
