Patricia, your climate is not very favorable for
arils or even most aril looking hybrids so use that as your excuse.
There is no standard agreement on the
distinction between "aril" and "arilbred". Some use "aril" when all of the
chromsomes come from only aril chromosome parents and "arilbred" to indicate a
cultivar with a combination of aril and TB/median chromosomes. Some use "aril"
to indicate pure aril type and "arilbred" for any hybrids even between the
different types of arils. Some have other distinctions. I favor the first
definition as I feel it is more useful in communication.

Subject: [iris-photos] Arilbreds
They're gorgeous!! I'm trying not to look
at Arilbreds; one iris obsession is more than enough for my budget, space, and
hyb ambitions. I don't like the foreshortened falls that apparently are
typical of the full arils, but the colors and patterns of arilbreds (hybrids?)
are beyond beautiful.
