Thomas and all,
The iris that Thomas pictured and is talking about
is actually the species I. reichenbachii (correct spelling). (Not to be
confused with I. rosenbachiana.) There actually have been 2 different
clones kicking around. The first is the regular I. reichenbachii, which is
diploid. This new clone that Thomas pictures, which I purchased from
Lowell Baumunk, is also I. reichenbachii, but this clone was collected in the
Varda Gorge of Greece and is tetraploid. It is still just I. reichenbachii
and is not named, so the name actually should read I. reichenbachii ex. Varda
Gorge (the "ex" meaning "from").
