REF: Comprehensive Checklist of Aril & Arilbred Irises

From: Irisacher@aol.com

JUST in time for the holidays.  This information-packed book (196 p. plus 
several appendices), compiled by Kay Nelson Keppel and Sharon McAllister, is 
available from:

Dorothy Stiefel
HIPS Publications Sales Chair
312 Dryden-Harford Rd.
Dryden, NY  13053

for the sum of $20.00 (includes postage). Checks should be made out to HIPS 
(or Historic Iris Preservation Society)

Just what is it all about, you ask.  

From the introduction:
"This book is a new approach to Checklists.  It draws on information about 
arils and arilbreds from many different sources and presents it in a single, 
comprehensive volume and in convenient alphabetical form --without 
sacrificing the precision of the original sources.  It includes cultivars 
that qualified as arils and arilbreds under all classification systems used 
by AIS or ASI over the years......"

You may remember the query about the iris STRIPED BUTTERFLY a few weeks ago 
on this list.  It is listed as a TB in the AIS checklist, and it does not 
appear in the Aril Society International checklist, as it no longer 
"qualifies" under present rules.

Here is the very informative entry from McAllister's Comprehensive Checklist:

STRIPED BUTTERFLY  DIS  (Luella Noyd, R. 1956).  Sdlg N5-34.  TB, 34", M. 
"Butterfly Wings" x Cahokia.  Light blue self, falls veined darker 
violet-blue; yellow beard; small area of olive-ochre at haft.  Noyd, 1958.  
Notes: 1/8 onco, qualified as an arilbred until the quantum requirement was 
adopted.  Ref: AIS '59, p.188. 

Just a sample of the nuggets of aril lore found in these pages.  A very 
useful and important contribution to iris literature, and HIPS is pleased and 
honored to distribute it.  Thank you, Sharon!
