The vultivar found today is not the registerede cultivar 'Zebra' which had white flowers striped blue. Apparently that cultivar has disappeared and a variety of 'Iris pallida' with yellow striped foliage has assumed the name. The first promotion of the new 'Zebra seemed to be in the old Lloyd Austin Catalogs of his Rainblow Gardens. It has becoe a popular lant with landscapers in some part of the USA. A close relative is 'Argentea' which is a pallida with white striped foliage.
