I know a Carl Boswell from northern California, whose charming wife is named
LaRue, so I suspect the iris is named for her.
Since he recently sent me his recipe for meatball soup, I feel compelled to
mention the sign I saw on a small tank truck a couple of days ago--
"Smith and Sons: Cesspool Pumping and Bean Soup Delivery."
Gerry--who has dug about 25% of his irises in the last two days, and is _very_
appreciative of purple leaf bases. They let me identify at least four cultivars
that otherwise would have been dumped in the "miscellaneous" heap.
