	You mentioned height being affected by sun but what the flowering?
	I intend to plant I. graminea here and was going to be it in
	partial sun/shade but I am interested in the flower output in the
	garden altho' the foliage is lovely in pix.

	In `The Iris' by Brian Mathew, he talks of three varieties, one
	is I. graminea var. pseudocyperus which is a "larger and more
	robust plant than var. graminea, and the flowers are unscented."
	p. 112.

	Is this the var. that Jim W. and Ian E. are speaking about? 

	Also, a variant in which the flowers are said to be yellowish-
	white (achtaroffi) sounds interesting.

	Happy T-Day everyone in US,
