Hi Pearl,

I raise both setosa var. interior (Alaskan) and setosa canadensis. The
Alaskan setosas vary quite a bit but I've never seen any setosa with

Versicolors may do better in your climate than setosas, too. Versicolors are
a natural hybrid of setosa and virginica and come in a wide range of sizes
and colors. While most versicolors show very dark lines through the signals
some look quite a bit like Siberians.

I have a few photos of versicolor and setosa posted on my iris pages at
http://www.povn.com/rock/iris3.html  and
http://www.povn.com/rock/iris4.html and Rodney Barton has a site devoted to
species irises at http://molly.hsc.unt.edu/~rbarton/Iris/NANI.html.

By "lax", I meant that compared to average Siberians, the average
versicolors' leaves tend to arch a bit more.
