Iris Foetidissima by Foster

The Garden p.42, July 8, 1881

Iris foetidissima.— Has any reader of The Garden come across an Iris foetidissima with a cream coloured flower? In an old number of the Phytologist years ago some one records having found it, I think, somewhere near Swanage. I cannot find it in any collection or catalogue, but am anxious to acquire by purchase or exchange a living root of it. I should similarly like to get hold of a specimen of I foetidissima with double flowers. Such a plant once grew wild near Torquay.— M. Foster, Shelford, Cambs.
