Re: japanese iris

Hi all,

	john walker <NEJWW@nervm.nerdc.ufl.edu> originally asked:

I asked my folks if they had any more information about this iris. They do
not know any more details other than what has already been quoted from the
AIS checklist, but did give me a little background about it, as follows:

>We have grown AKEBONO for many years, but don't

>a lot of Marx seedlings), Lorena Reid -- any of these.
>Many years ago Marx, who used to be very active in this
