Ken, I just love Heronswood.  Last week on HGTV they did an interview with
Dan Hinkley.  What an amazing man he is!  He's got a new book out and it's
on the top of my Christmas wish list.  (*hint, hint!*)  Hahahah...anyway....

Last year I was excited to find a specialized nursery that carried Iris
sikkimensis.  Only it turned out to be a beardless iris.  Obviously not
Iris sikkimensis.  I hope yours turns out to be the real thing.

With the extensive plant collecting Dan Hinkley has done in China & the
Himalayas, it could very well be the genuine article.  And I hope it is!
Maybe you'll even share the pollen with some of your Iris-Talk buddies.  :)
