Tropical irids

In the recent comment that I made about irises in Australia, I forgot to add 
one reference that people might find very useful.  This is a short book 
entitled "Bulbs for All Climates" which is produced by the Australian 
Women's Weekly Garden Series.  It is an excellent short summary of the bulbs 
that will grow in Australia (forget the all seasons bit!) with excellent 
photographs of many of the tropical irises that can be grown in the warmer 
parts of NAm and Europe.  Most of them are Middle East or African in origin. 
It contains growing hints, etc.  Despite its origin, I found piles of them  
on sale at Price Club/CostCo for about $6 Can, which is less than $5US.  It 
is an excellent buy for a 128 page booklet and would be excellent for Hawaii.
