If Larry Harder has seen the iris in question growing, this is futile -- he
wouldn't miss on any of the obivious. But...if he has only seen a picture
there is a chance.
Look at the NEWS section of the HIPS web page -- I have placed a link to an
iris that is, hopefully, a start on identifying your unknown which is
similar to WABASH. The iris depicted on the HIPS page is one of the most
likely-to-be-found old amoenas in your area. [HIPS page --
At least it is a start -- you can describe how your unknown differs from
the photo of WABASH and whether it is close to AMIGO.
