Will ask--don't know off hand.  I do know that there is a publication 
titled (if I recall correctly) "Flora of Virginia" which lists native 
species and where they are found (available in reference sections of 
public libraries).  In cases where things are rare they do 
give pretty specific information--not enough to find the plants yourself, 
but enough info to figure out who might know!

Debbie Green in Williamsburg, VA where the Japanese Iris are showing 
their buds, but I think the Lousiana Iris "Black Gamecock" is going to be 
a no-show again this year--will have to move to a sunnier location as 
clump has increased and looks wonderful, but no bloom!
