I would love to receive the start you mention. I would be glad to
recipracate with pieces from my Turkey seedlings; however, they are being very
slow of growth, and I'm not sure how long before they reach a decent size to
divide (one maybe this year, the other probably not at least until next
year). Mine came as "I. germanica", but their behavior so far suggests
that they may be something else entirely. I'll learn more when (if) they
ever get around to flowering.

Dave, I found your comments in the two most
recent posts especially interesting. I, too, wish there were photos of
the various clones.
When I can divide the 48-chromosome (assumed
count) "germanica" from HIPS seed, originating from seed coll in NW Greece,
I'll send you a start. I think, as Robert Pries suggests, that more can
be learned by individuals growing some of these and living with them in the
flesh, side by side or in the same garden.
