Rita, that is a very interesting list and I'm delighted you found it and sent 
it in. I was looking forward to your list! 

Something that interests me on these things is how wide the good range on 
some of the plants is. An iris may get a whole lot of attention in one 
cultural range but when one gets mentioned in a lot of different places, that 
catches my attention.

SHAMPOO is a neat little greenish median iris that I have admired in the 
past. BB I believe? I think Hall picked it out at a show once, along with 
OBLIGATO and HOLY NIGHT. And I'm pleased to see good old CAMELOT ROSE show 
up, and OLA KALA for heaven's sake! I bet that one accounts for a lot of 
larger yellow unknowns one hears about. I have seen CALICO CAT looking very 
nice in VA, too. Cute as a newt!

Thank you.

Anner Whitehead
