RE: HIST: Peabody Irises?

When my dad graduated from George Peabody College in the early
1960's he brought home a rhizome with his diploma.  I cannot be 
certain that he brought home i. germanica.  I do know that there is
still some i. germanica in my mother's yard. At least I believe it to be
i. germanica as pictured on the HIPS wed page.  Mother might be able 
to tell me the exact clump she planted from Peabody.  Maybe not.
She hasn't moved stuff around in her yard as much as I have.  If anyone
is interested I'll see if she remembers, but this would be an iris from the 
60's not the 30's.
