Linda, the following is a quote from Keith Keppel's catalog.
OWYHEE DESERT (Pinkston '97) ML 30" (Wild Jasmine X ?) One of the
most original new irises we've grown in years. Standards white to
greenish white, falls rusty brown, encircled white, washed gold to green
gold but still leaving a whitish ray pattern. Not an easy parent, but
well worth trying. $35
O D was hybridized by Lucille Pinkston, of Parma, ID, and
introduced by Sand Hollow Iris Gardens, 14000 Oasis Rd., Caldwell , ID
You may order Keith Keppel's catalog by writing him at P. O. Box

I agree O D is beautiful and am glad I ordered it without seeing a
picture of it!
Has anyone on the list in OR or ID seen this iris?
