You are kidding, right?

Please, "Accept no substitutes." There are WAY too many 
misidentified iris out there without (well-intentioned) 
deliberate confusions. Possible problems: a budding 
irisarian sees Helen in your garden, buys Edith, it 
fails as a garden plant, and she/he gets discouraged; 
Helen's increases get distributed as Edith; you feel 
guilt and shame over the deception.

Please, please, PLEASE resist the temptation. It is 
the dark side of the Force.
