Thanks Laurie, this is what i thought
Like Betty just rightly said,
'"""The word "median" ( or the middle)
implies there is something on either end"""",
the TBs and The MDBs.
So, like Jean asked, what about the Arils and
Arilbred, they are not at the end of anything!

Bearded is not a Median???
According to the AIS's definition, "Incidentally, the word "median"
refers to all the bearded irises except the miniature dwarfs and the
tall beardeds; that is to say the SDBs, IBs, BBs and the MTBs. Strictly
speaking, the word "dwarf" means only the MDBs."

include MDBs. See http://www.medianiris.com/glossary1.shtml
Which definition is also concurrent with The World Of Irises
