SPEC:Iris chrysographes

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Iris chrysographes is very easily grown from seed, which can be had from
SIGNA every year, or from Thompson & Morgan, who list it among their few
iris offerings.  The plants only survive a few years here (probably too hot
in summer) but are worth keeping going from seed.  Most commercially
available forms are nearly black (from the red-purple side) with striking
gold lines in the throat.  Needs a steady supply of moisture and a good,
organic soil.  Likes cooler climates and seems to be fully hardy at least
into Z5.  A favorite parent for Sino-sibe and Cal-sibe hybrids.
