Joining the ranks of Woolworths and K.mart is "Dave's Soda and Pet Food
City" where I saw (amongst the rats, mice, gerbils, parakeets,
non-alcoholic beverages and puppy chow) a box containing "water iris"
with a picture of a caesar's brother-like siberian on the side, as well
as a pseudacorus.  As far as I know, this plants will last perhaps two
weeks out of soil at the very most, if kept properly moist, so I have no
idea what that package conatined and it wasn't worth the eight bucks to
find out. Misinformation at so many levels, alas....
