Concerning ident. of the iris pictured on the calendar (which I find
very convenient in size and format, too, by the way) I am frustrated
by the absence of same, too. Inquiry of one knowledgeable "inside"
person brought the answer that the reason for no ID of the calendar
iris was because hybridizers whose flowers were excluded were (might
be?) jealous that their creations didn't get the publicity which
others got free of charge. Or, to put it more charitably, AIS didn't
want to give free publicity to some, to the exclusion of others. I
have no idea whether this has is a reason for the non-ID decision.
Personally it seems a poor reason, but......... Meanwhile I continue
to like and use the calendar, which our club also buys in quantity
for the members. When it comes to irritation over non-ID, I feel
the same way about the AIS postcards.
