That is the name I was told before. Thankyou for the information. I just know that the man who was born here in 1908 said his mother took some when they left in the dust bowl. She had told him it was here before they came. Last I spoke to him he still has some. It was one of the few plants that survived being left to their own devices.

> I have an iris here, can't remember the name of it, it is supposed to be
a species. It is a pale yellow with brown veins. Color in clump looks light
yellow. It does real well in shade and last year we put some in the sun and
it seems just as happy there.
Your iris sounds like it might be FLAVESCENS, which was named and described
as a species by the Swiss botanist DeCandolle in 1813, but which Dykes
declared to be an obvious hybrid not entitled to species status. The
flowers are borne on branched stalks about 30 inches tall with pale lemon
yellow standards and even paler, brown-veined falls; beards pale yellow
tipped orange. FLAVESCENS is well known for its ability to survive and even
thrive under less than ideal conditions.
