Re: Digest Number 1195


No matter when the registration was made, the year of introduction is the 
important date. Your description of the introductions could very well mention 
the registration date as some irisarians might not be interested in 
purchasing varieties which they perceive as being "old." The description 
should also include the parentage, another clue for those who prefer being on 
the cutting edge. 

Sometimes hybridizers let things out of the garden which they later decide 
not to introduce. I presume you have permission of the hybridizers to make 
the introductions. I also presume when these unintroduced varieties were 
shown as seedlings, as they would not be eligible to be shown in any other 
class. (If these were AIS sanctioned shows.) A surprising number of varieties 
appear at shows which have never been registered, although they have been 
introduced. They should only be shown in seedling classes in this case.

I applaud your effort to help hybridizers introduce there things. Of all the 
aspects of hybrizing for novices distribution is the hardest part. Even if 
these hybridizers decide to introduce their own things, it is very difficult 
to build distribution to a point that their introductions, no matter how 
good, get noticed.
