Not being loath to undertake a lesser task, however, I offer you, instead,
some commentary on why several of the binomials you have listed are named as
they are:

attica -- similar to tectorum, but grows beneath the roof

subbiflora -- same as attica, but two floors down

mandschurica -- a variety, candidans mandschurica, will sit quietly in your
garden for years, then suddenly burst into bloom . . .  etc, etc und soweiter


Your derivations are impeccable with the following exception:
>>gatesii -- to be planted at the entrance to your garden, of course<<

Many eminent authorities consider this to be the first computer-generated, virtual iris.
