I have a lovely TB which I acquired some years ago (it is a very 
modern form, however) under the name GLITTERING DAWN.  In trying to 
find it in the R & I books, however, I ran stuck, as there was no 
such name I could find.  It matches the name--a pink with definite 
apricot overtones, and a glitter when the sunlight shines across 
it---, is a large flower, not very tall for a TB but definitely a TB 
flower, not a flower so new it has a great number of blossoms per 
stalk.  Either I didn't look carefully enough (always possible, tho 
I went thru the books a number of times), or the person from whom I 
got it had things wrong or ..........  Anyway, I just wondered if 
anyone had any suggestions about identity or how I might track it 
down, if you've ever heard of an iris by that name, in short, 
anything that might help me find out what I really have.
