	Dorothy, there is no other iris like this, and I, too, had shoved it 
aside for the bigger and 'better' irises that came later one, much to 
my regret.  Recently, I got a new start of DUSKY EVENING through a 
trade, but it has been struggling along, so I decided to move it 
again this summer.  I am keeping my fingers crossed as I see a little 
green shoot emerging at the soil-line.

	Thanks for joining in on this thread.  I hope Santa finds this for 
you and leaves it all green and potted under your tree - ready to 
bloom next season.
