Perhaps when I said that the foliage of my CAEZARS BROTHER did flop a bit I
overstated its habit.  It is by no means a floppy foliage iris, just not
"perfect" in having tall, straight foliage say, in comparison with HIGH
STANDARDS.  And re ILLINI ENCORE exceeding the height indicated in
registration book, I think you probably have found that heights of all
registered irises are relative.  It is rare for a Louisiana or Spuria iris to
 reach its potential in Northern VA, but Siberians and Japanese irises will
often grow taller.  In registering irises, breeders do the best they
can---but plants will not be so constrained as to perform the same
everywhere.  How boring if they did.  Clarence Mahan in VA
