		In Cornell Extension Bulletin 112, "Bearded Iris: A
Perennial Suited to all

is found on page 51:

Natives, or plants with

was refering to. 

		This very valuable publication is now available from
HIPS, the Historic Iris
		Preservation Society, for eight dollars, postpaid. Best
book money I've spent
		in a long time. Order from:
