|_Curtis's Botanical Magazine_ 88: tab. 5298. 1862,Two new species of Iris were detected by the naturalists of Captain Beechey's Voyage of H. ML surveying ship Sulphur, in California, both very distinct from any other known of this extensive genus : these are Iris Douglasiana, Herbert in Hook, and Arn. Bot. of Beechey's Voyage, and J. longipetala, I. c. p. 395. Tubers of the latter species have been received at the Royal Horticultural Society, and a specimen was kindly sent to us by Mr. Thomas Moore, from the garden at Chiswick, last summer (1861), from which the accompanying figure is taken. It seems quite hardy, and will prove a great ornament to our flower-gardens.|
