I received this message today and hope someone can help me locate this iris
and supply information on Mr. Gaulter.

Subject: Ruching

I am trying to learn where to locate "Ruching". Cooleys Gardens 
(Oregon) introduced Ruching from hybridizer Larry Gaulter back in 1981. 
However it is not listed in their current catalogue. Upon further 
inquiry, Cooley's informed me that they no longer carry the plant, nor 
do they know of anyone else that carries it.

I also came to know that Mr. Gaulter died more than 5 years ago.

I am a novice iris grower in Minneapolis MN. I became captivated by 
Ruching 2 years ago when I saw it in the garden of a former president 
of the Iris Society of Minnesota. I made a mental note back then, to 
add it as a prize to my humble collection some future day. While trying 
to contact this woman again, I learned that she died in February.

My mind's eye recalls that Ruching was lovely with its laced lavendar 
bloom and white flush at the center of its falls. A light beard and 
golden throat highlighted the large bloom. It was a stately, borne on a 
tall stalk.

Such a desription begs the question why Cooley's would drop the plant. 
Perhaps Ruching lacks winter hardiness? (They offered no explanation.)

Schreiners's recommended that I contact you for more information. I 
trust that through your association with HIPs, you may be able to 
explore leads far more efficiently than me.

I look forward to hearing from you on subject, including how it was 
developed by the late Mr. Gaulter.
