Dear Barb; 
	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.
