This is a trick someone else shared with me and saved my Iris life.  Every
time I plant  an Iris I write the name on a plastic knife, both sides and
once each way. 'Black Swan    nawS kackB' and put it in the hole before I
put the iris in.  Then if there is ever a question I can if necessary rescue

Several years ago I had cut down all the Iris leaves around my house and
pushed the markers into the ground as far as possible.  My clean up was done
for the year.  Two days later my neighbor showed up at my back door with all
my markers in hand.  "You forgot these."  I could have cried.

Donald, Neil, and others.

Thanks for the suggestions on identities for iris.  I am continuously trying
to perfect my garden to be free from unknowns!  Strangely, the more my
garden becomes free of unknowns (I currently only have 2 NOID's) my passion
spreads to other peoples' gardens!  (hehehe!!)

I think the iris photo I posted as Black Swan was indeed Edenite.  After
doing an entire internet search for both these iris (to see if anyone in the
world may have posted photos on their site), I found only one link to a
photo of Black Swan.  Neil, you were correct in referring the form of Black
Swan to the sillouhette logo on the AIS Checklist . . . I too think that
Logo could be Black Swan!  Edenite may be close in color, but definitely not
in form!

Thanks for posting your photo of Edenite, Donald.  The form of your Edenite
was perfect for matching the photo I took . . . if only I could see inside
the flower more to compare the yellow stylearms and beards.  Now I just hope
my friend Dolores is willing to change the ID of her clump!

So, does anyone have an idea of how to change the subject of my last e-mail
of "HIST: Black Swan" to "HIST: Edenite" so that no "unsuspecting searchers"
find discover my incorrect iris in the future?  :-)  *smile!*

Thanks ya'll!
