I realize that this was written to somebody on the West Coast...but I 
would like to just add that John White, a Japanese and Siberian 
hybridizer of some note of Minot, Maine, has been growing and 
hybridizing I. tenax, both light and dark varieties for some time. All 
I know about I. dougliasana (certainly not how to spell it) is that I 
have it emblazoned on a t-shirt :). 

John White won the best seedling award with one of his I. tenax 
seedlings at the Maine Iris Society show on June 10th. Other folks in 
our club also said that they are growing PCNs. I did plant tenax seeds 
(both light and dark variety) from Signa one year and had no  
germination. It wasn't the weather - they never left my basement.
