Hi, Jelcy!

Welcome to Iris-talk! I expect you already have many friends in this group.
Good luck with all the iris projects you have going in the Dallas area!

I can offer you some info and/or suggestions about a couple of the irises
on your list.

TURANDOT (F. Carr, ,92) TB 46" M.  S. reddish violet with yellow infusion,
reddish violet midrib; F. yellow, reddish violet halo with plicata
markings, white emanating from yellow beards, reddish violet centerline.
I have grown this cultivar for several years and it is as formidable as its
namesake! Notice the height - give it plenty of room when you plant it, and
stand back! 
There is no iris named "Florentine Table" that I am aware of. Perhaps what
the donor intended when they labeled it thus was to indicate that it was a
rhizome of "I. florentina, table iris" (MTB).
