That is THE iris I want to get (I. iberica var Elegantissima).  I saw a
photo of it way back sometime before I was really into Irises and at the
time decided that I would get it "one day".  It is the most beaustiful
pristine white and chocolate brown.  Jan, do you know if it grows from
seed?  From what I saw in the photo it was growing wild throughout a grassy
hillside which makes me think it must be true from Seed.  If so, do you (or
anyone else out there) know where I can get some seed.  That is the
absolute most wanted Iris by me.... one of the things which made me take up
irises in the first place (that and the picture I saw of I. reticulata
"Harmony" which filled a bowl...... I managed to achieve that this year).

Thanks in anticipation.
