 Perhaps pallida dalmatica was on the list of lost irises because it was
 given away rather than because it died.  Even way back then, it must
 have been considered old and out of style by the standards of the time
 and maybe was pitched to make room for fancier cultivars, only to be
 regretted later.   >>

Or maybe the person tried to get it but got a clone that was inferior and 
clearly not I. pallida Dalmatica. There are lots of clones of I. pallida in 
circulation, named and unnamed, and always have been. They are not all 
created equal and some are far more desirable than others. The presumption 
was if one got real DALMATICA one was on to the good stuff. It was still 
considered of considerable horticultural interest well into the thirties. In 
the South having the "real one" was a status thing. Read the relevant passage 
in Elizabeth Lawrence's book, " A Southern Garden."
