Hi Anner,

I have been telling people that it was in the early 1930s that Bob Schreiner 
got the seeds, but it may have been the late 1920s.  In any event, that is 
more than 50 years.  It has been 55 years since Walter Welch published his first 
descriptive  list of dwarf iris species and cultivars.
