	I think the subseries, I. chrysographes, grows well here in Zone
	3 even though it is indicated that it grows in Zone 4 and up.

	Too bad that the individual species, I. chrysographes, is also the
	name of the subseries...same thing with I. sibericae. My I. delavayi
	is branched not the I. chrysographes. :-( Sorry for the unclear

	Now to pronunciation. <G> I pronounce it like Jeff's post indicates
	but we are both wrong according to Currier's book.

	Jeff wrote: Kris-owe-GRAF-eeze

	Currier indicates: cry(as in crystal)-so-GROg-fees

	Almost the same pronunciation as a practical matter. :-)

	Not only do I not know, among other things, a mnemonic device
	for the sino-sibs, I had to look up the word...always troubling
	as my 55th birthday approaches....more brain cells dying?

	I agree that the American South does have a wee bit more of the
	English-English . Never refer to the British monarchy if it can be
	helped. No Celtic-Anglophiles here. :-)

	Ellen (who received a private post that asked me if I had seen a
	       robin yet - she had - this is February in the snowy, cold
	       White Mountains and no robins just our erstwhile chickadees)
