I have a number of the plants--the parental ones as well as progenies 
of two different generations.  ADRENALINE RUSH put up a small stalk 
after arrival here with a singe bloom.  I hope to see others in the 
spring.  I find them fascinating and am not especially hung up on 
exactly WHAT they are.  Boon's test would be helpful and add to the 

In terms of iris evolution there must be some common ground among the 
species related to the sino-siberians, siberica and ensata.  Even if 
Tony Huber's proposal or speculation (?) is or is not accurate, the 
common and shared DNA sequences would likely be substantial between 
the various groups.  The peculiar problem of phenotypes with no 
intergradiation in the blossom construction is not the only 
phenotypic aspect present in these plants.  Foliage character, roots, 
growth habits, moisture requirements are part of that array as well.
