Wouldn't it be nice if there were several 'standard' forms of bearded
irises?  How about space-age, bubble-ruffled, species-looking (?),
horizontal falls, 45o falls, >45o falls, open-standards, conical
standards, domed standards, fat shoulders, narrow shoulders, medium
width shoulders, or maybe just call them pre-30's style, 50's style,

I enjoyed Anner's comment about irises that we can appreciate as
'achievements' that we might not think are beautiful.  I have seen
irises from most styles and shapes that I've thought were beautiful and
others that were not.  Seems a shame not to be encouraging improvements
in vigor & substance among iris forms that are no longer stylish, but
that some of us find more beautiful than more modern forms & maybe
putting some of those options on the registration form would encourage
more acceptible diversity of form.
