On TBs, not on the SDBs, ;-)

> Haha, so you are a domed standards fan? found that it is actually possible to breed standard form into iris...

Actually, I'm not sure I know the difference between domed and
conical/closed. I guess the latter is my preference, if that means
touching, but I prefer domed over open.

I think. ;-)

>seems like about 30% liked domed, 30% like conical or closed, 10% like
open and the rest don't care as long as they like the flower. Very
unscientific survey by the way....just listening to customers.

I'd also be interested in hearing more about heredity of open vs closed.
Seems like all the newer stuff with more substance tend to be more
open, so I thought those two traits went together, but maybe not. So far
