Very nice clump, Linda. It almost looks like
one I've been trying to id here, but alas, my purchased I germanica didn't
survive long enough to bloom. I'll have to hunt it down again, but I also
have quite a few other historics I'm trying to id as well.
Last year, I finally managed to id an iris I've
been growing for close to 20 years. What a thrill that was!
