Sino-Siberians; A term created by Lorena Reid and Jean Witt in their price list to cover the species and species hybrids in the subseries Chrysographes. It was a handy terminology since this series of Siberians crosses readily and it is often hard to determine whether a plant is avariation on one of the species or a hybrid between species. Since all the Iris in this group come from the Himalayan Mountain region Sino was an apt term.

It is hard to understand what objection there could be to this term but some favored the term 40-chromosome Siberian. Unfortunately one species ( Iris clarkei ) in this subseries has 38 rather than 40 as to make that name not quite accurate.
