Re: SPEC: Iris pumila

Or some of the mentions of same in the earlier American literature could  
conceivably refer to the true species. Just because it wasn't here in 1920  does 
not mean it never had been. 
My point is simple: We need to remember what we really know and what  we 
actually don't know. I f we cannot document something definitively either  way, 
then the question MUST remain a question, else we start thinking we  know things 
we don't, building ideas on shaky sands, and that sort  of thinking tends to 
concatenate into folly.
