Oh yes Owyhee Desert !

I 'm sorry, I trusted of my memory. :-(

Interesting for me the explanation about the origin of the name.

I imagine the place so exotic, amazing, fantastic, as the iris ! :-o

Is is possible, Roberto, that by "Owee Desert" you refer to

The name "Owyhee," by the way, is an early variant spelling
for "HAWAII," and is used in geographical nomenclature for a large
county in southwestern Idaho, for a desert area in that region (for
which Ms. Pinkston has named this cv) and for various communities and
features of the area.  The name was given by early explorers because
of a curious resemblance to some areas in the Hawaiian Islands.

Neil Mogensen,  zone 6b/7a near Asheville, NC, but once from an area
where the Owyhee country constituted more than a third of the view.
