EASTER MORN was in the 1996 HIPS sale. There is also MOUNT WASHINGTON
and STIPPLES (don't know who has these).
PALE MOONLIGHT -- Nicholls nursery had it last year
SHINING WATERS, in case you don't have it -- Argyle Acres
SIERRA BLUE -- everyone sells this one. I got it last year.

Somewhere I have a list of Essig irises, but most of them haven't shown
up in commerce.         Cheers, Barb         Anner would know.
