My variegatas may well be a named clone or hybrid.  I'm not really an
expert on differentiating historic iris, so maybe when these bloom
(probably in 2000) Mike Lowe can take a look at them.  The rhizomes are
quite small, thumb-size, but I don't know if these are blooming-size or
not.  There are no increases showing and the foliage is in the dormant
phase at about an inch tall in a tight little fan.  There appear to be no
purple bases.  I'm hoping to cross these some time in the future with a
little yellow MTB I grew from Signa seed years ago.  This is a pretty
rugged little fellow that has survived being moved from one bad spot for an
iris to another.  Currently I have it in a real good spot and hope that it
will show what it can do....also rejuvenating my planting of I. subbiflora
with the intention of trying it on variegata and other diploids.
