A number of the iris websites have glossaries -- some extensive,
others a bit terse. For example, the HIPS website features the
glossary from 'Garden Irises' L.F. Randolph, Editor. An excerpt
containing perianth-tube is reproduced below:

Parthenogenesis -- The development of a new individual from a germ cell without
      fertilization.
Perennial -- Living for more than two growing seasons.
Perianth -- The collective term for the petals and sepals (standards and falls
      of the iris flower).
Perianth-tube -- The slender tube of the iris flower connecting the ovary with
      the separate perianth parts (sepals and petals).
Petal -- One of the inner series of perianth parts (one of the three standards
      of the iris flower).
Petiole -- The stalk of the leaf. Back to the top
pH -- A symbol used in designating acidity or alkalinity -- A pH of 7 indicates
      a neutral condition, lower amounts indicate acidity, higher amounts
      indicate alkalinity.
Phenotype -- The sum total of the expressed characters of an individual, as
      contrasted with its genotype or genetic constitution, which is often
      partly latent.
Phylogeny -- The evolutionary history of a species or other taxonomic unit.
Pistil -- The female reproductive structure of the flower, including
in the case
      of the iris flower the ovary, style, style-branch, and stigma.
Plastid -- A minute body in the cells in which are located green and yellow
      coloring matter (chlorophyll, carotene, etc.).

If you don't have a reference with an iris glossary, you might
consider downloading and printing an online glossary.

Of course, the best course of action is to purchase a complete
reference such as AIS's 'The World of Iris' or Bill Shear's  'The
Gardener's Iris Book'.

Cheers,

Mike
