:I am looking at a Van Bourgondien catalog in which they feature Iris
:Tectorum Variegatum...really a very interesting looking plant.  Can
:anyone tell me if they grow it and perhaps a little info about it?  I am
:seriously considering buying a couple for myself and my daughter.

Iris tectorum is a small but lovely iris with frilly "crests" where beards
would be on a bearded iris. The form you refer to has variegated foliage. I
had it once, but it died before blooming (my fault, not the plant's--I gave
it an awful location). I intend to try it again some time.
