	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
18154, Salem, OR 97305.

	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?

	Walter Moores
	Enid Lake, MS 7/8
