HIST: Indian Chief

Welcome to the list, Gesine!  Your identifying your mother's iris as INDIAN 
CHIEF is quite a coincidence.  My husband and I have wondered for years what 
the three iris cultivars are that we saved from some that my parents brought 
to Kentucky from Birmingham, Alabama, in the forties.  We attended the HIPS 
Convention in Syracuse, New York, this year and I took lots of slides.  I 
also managed to get a few different shots of one of the oldies of which I 
spoke when it bloomed (in the shade) this spring.  We just got around to 
viewing all these slides a couple of weeks ago, and lo and behold, this iris, 
too, appears to be INDIAN CHIEF!  It must have been widely distributed.

We still have two cultivars that I hope to get moved to a better spot so they 
will bloom and we might identify them as well.  Isn't this fun?

be run at Churchill Downs tomorrow...the city's all abuzz (or should it be 
all a-neigh?). <G>
