Michael,

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but in the eye of the AIS bearded
irises with pendent falls are unlikely to receive awards. The Judges'
Handbook does not use the word pendant (or its adjectival form, pendent),
but as the dictionary defines these words as essentially synonyms of
"hanging", the following comments from the JH (respecting TBs) may be
pertinent:

"If the falls hang vertically without swirl or lilt, this detracts from the
flower and should be penalized in relation to the degree that the falls
hang".

If anything, the bias in favor of flaring falls is even more strongly
expressed with respect to medians and dwarfs.
