	Chad and others:

	From Lorena Reid's price list, these are the interspecies crosses
she has been making.

	Sino-Siberians    Himalayan sibes X PCN

	Cal-Sibes         Above hybrid crossed with PCN

	Sibtosa		  Siberian X setosa

	Versi-laev        Versicolor x laevigata

	As far as I know, there has not been a 'combining form' to produce
a name for the spuria x la or for the versicolor x la cross that produced
LITTLE CAILLET.  Sounds Spanish but how about La-spu and La-versi.  It may
also be that the first part of the name may be the pod parent, but I do
not know.

	I have been testing all of the above types from Reid and
Mertzweiller/Caillet, and all have grown well except the Sinos, which have
all died.  The sibtosas grow like kudzu.

	Shafer/Sacks have introduced versicolor hybrids, but I do not know
what the other parent is, nor do I know the make-up of MYSTERIOUS MONIQUE,
which was quite the rage earlier this year on Iris-l.
