 And, if you have the current Application for Registration, you will 
 find the beard description 'made simple.'  This is what it says:
 10. Color of beards_____________________________________
  If color varies noticeably, complete the following as applicable:
 By Section: End_________________Middle_______________Throat_______
 By Hairs:   Tip_________________ Base______________________________


Thanks for the clearification.  It has been four or five years since I've 
registered an iris and I'd forgotten about the above form.  I was trying to 
caution that a listed beard color could be deceptive.  Identifying an iris in 
the flesh is hard unless it's one of a kind--distinctive.   Identifying by 
descripition OR picture is much harder.

Actually, its even more confusing for the non-hybridizing irisarian than I 
remembered.  Exactly which part of the beard and which part of the individual 
hairs are we talking about when we say 'beard color'?  AND just how careful 
and analytical was the hybridizer when he register said iris?
