One of the most beautiful plantings of Iris cristata I have ever seen was at
the little "botanic garden area" at the Eastern Cherokee Reservation in North
Carolina.  This area also has a replica of a Cherokee farm house and garden
from Colonial times....for all the commercialism of the Cherokee Reservation,
this little botanic garden area is a haven of beauty.  The cristata were used
as a ground cover on the slope of large hill...exquisite!  Clarence Mahan in
