Thanks, Jeff and Carolyn.  I recall that passage in McEwen's book but could
make no sense of the version posted.  Tetraploid Calsibe seed was offered
last year by SIGNA and I have one very vigorous seedling coming along from
the four seeds I planted. Calsibes have been short-lived here in central
Virginia, as are both of their parent types (though Iris delavayi has been
with me for 10 years now).  I'm hoping the tetraploids might be more

I wonder if anyone has tried tetraploid calsibes with tetraploid 28 (56)
chromosome siberians?  A breakthrough there could lead to some really
exciting plants.
