Vince sez:

   This is why when I make my lists of descriptions of the
irises in my garden, I write down what it actually looks
like, rather than what it is described as in the Checklist
or a catalog. Some catalogs don't give the beard color at
all. It also helps to distinguish between similar irises. 
   A club member puts on the description from the checklist
on all rhizomes that she brings to the sale. End up with a
lot that say "blue S, purple F", or something like that.
Not enough info there to be able to distinguish the
difference between similar varieties. That's why I find
myself adding info on beard color, haft marks, ruffling,
etc. to my list. I'll usually just have the description
from a catalog or photo initially, but will then update it
when I see it bloom. (And I am still waiting for SOMETHING
to bloom - all you CA and TX people are TORTURING us!!!)
