	GOLDEN CRIMPING (McEwen '85) An unsual flower with piecrust crimping
	and a light golden edge against the creamy, ivory falls and ruffles
	standards. The falls fade to sunny yellow shoulders and the cream
	frosts to pure white in the sun. (p. 11, The Siberian Iris, Fall '94)
	It goes on to infer that it is `bigger' than most but has great
	branching. I don't grow it myself but it sounds good so I might
	try it.

	Poor BUTTER & SUGAR - it is a very good bloomer for me *altho* the
	foliage is sort of wimpy. :>( Check out the pix on Tom's cork board..
	ok, it was taken with an auto 35 mm.....not too good.

	This wonderful Siberian is so `maligned' by a fair amount of
	growers and that is why I chose to send it to the cork board
	to show that it does look good in certain gardens and climates.
	(It is my favorite Siberian.) shhh.....

	Nell, there are several fine yellows among the Siberians
	and more all the time. I particularly like PAS DE DEUX 
	(Hollingworth '88) which garnered an AM in '94. The pod parent
	was B & S.....it is a yellow amoena like B & S.
