Re: BLACK PRINCE


More than you might wish to know on Black Prince...

Simonet and Randolph BOTH did counts on Cordelia AND Black Prince.

No ambiguity -- results:Black Prince    26
                        Cordelia        25

This is nearly irrefutable evidence against synonymy. As to "Who done the
deed?':

Black Prince, seen in the garden, is one of my 'WOW' iris. Its length of
time in commerce and gardens and the fact that it has traded under at least
a dozen synonyms would indicate that others over the past 170 years have
also considered it to be a 'WOW' iris. Dominion and its descendents are, by
and large 'WOW' iris.

When you look at Black Prince, Dominion and the legion of Dominion
children;  growing in a garden, a STRONG familial resemblance is
immediately noticed. I firmly believe that it would be VERY hard to defend
a paternity suit brought against Black Prince. Cordelia is not even in the
running, IMO.

Cheers,
