Dykes in 2001. The genus iris is composed of a heck of a lot more than

I totally agree with Sandy that Baltic Star by Stahly is a wonderful 
iris and it is a Tall Bearded that I certainly would vote for since it 
is a phenomenal hardy flower as are many others like Moores', Powell's 
etc. But I think that it being in contention is so removed from 
reality that I have to pinch myself to imagine it. (but one can hope 
that my fellow judges also grow these gems...)
