Re: MED: MDB Bloom Season

 indicators of the timing and sequence of bloom of the different classes of
 iris in different locations.>>

I'm inclined to think that rather than attempting to identify a priori 
individual cultivars which would serve in this capacity, it might be valuable 
to assemble information on many named cultivars--whatever people 
reported--break it down into size categories and then subcategorize them by 
registered bloom time. From this information, assembled over two or three 
years, the names of indicator irises might declare themselves.
