The Iris Year Book 1948, p.131 printed the following letter:
"From Mr. Th. Hoog, of Haarlem, Holland.
The statement made by Dr. M. Amsler in the Iris Year Book of 1947 (p. 139) that Mr. G. P. Baker had collected this iris in Turkestan I fear misrepresents the facts, as Mr. Baker often collected in the Near East, but never in Central Asia. Very probably our old friend obtained this iris from Messrs. Van Tubergen, Haarlem.
It was offered for the first time in their catalog for autumn 1938-spring 1939, and was described as: "I. vicaria, white delicate blue tinged, a very fine robust-growing species, bearing many flowers in the axils of the leaves, April, 2 feet."
In 1930 or thereabouts the Russian Government was much interested in selling collected wild bulbs in Europe. At that time big importations of Lilium Szovitsianum, tulip species and other bulbs arrived. Some growers in the neighborhood offered I. warleyensis and as the stock of this species in our nursery had become very small we were interested to see these plants. However, on examing the plants labeled as I. warleyensis we found they were quite different and with the help of Professor Fedtschenko's book, Species of Wild Flowers of the U.S.S.R., we were able to determine the correct name.
With us I. vicaria is as easily grown as I. bucharica and the new I. graeberiana. The bulbs are planted in the beginning of November in sandy soil, containing a fair quantity of lime. In winter the bulbs are covered with a layer of rushes as is the habit in the bulb district in Holland. The cover is taken off in spring and when the bulbs have died down in July the bulbs are lifted. We never leave them in the ground. Great care is taken that the roots are as far as possible are not damaged and the bulbs are stored in a dry, slightly-heated room til the time of planting has come again. Seeds are freely produced, and provide a ready means of propagating this species."
A. C. Herrick in the same issue p. 97. Points out that Mr. Sealy of the Kew Herbarium believes that the plants referred to above are actually, yet another species Iris magnifica (Vedensky). Registered as a cultivar 'Vicaria'.
