Wow ,you made me hit the books today, I am very enthusiastic about flat
iris. I usually refer to them as six falled. Applanate is from the latin
applanatus (adj): flattened or horizontally expanded.
The only iris with six standards I have seen is BLUE TULIP(Knocke, R
'62) , it has no beards or anthers and holds it's standards very
stiffly upright, I am afraid it is not lovely but only a courisity.
RHYTHM, is fairly common here in region 18. I often see it at our
spring regional garden tours and have grown it for a number of years. I
must admit I usually "help" it open completely by by blowing or bending
any errant falls into their flat position.
BLACK BEAUTY is an iris I have never seen and am excited to hear of it
so "close" to home. Do you think a trade might be possible some day ? I
have a goodly number of "WIERD BEARDED IRIS ", in their own special
Keep up the good work searching out the unusual and rare lovies.
