I am encouraged that you regard chrysographes as fairly easy to grow, as I
got some seed of this iris from SIGNA this year and am hoping to be able to
grow and bloom it here.

According to Dr. McEwen's book, I. chrysographes (the species) gives its
name to chysographes (the series or subseries) that includes all the other
Sino-Siberian irises as well. He indicates that a couple of these are
branched, but not I. chrysographes itself. Did you mean to say that your I.
chrysographes is branched or were you referring to other members of the
series or hybrids among them?
