horizontal, especially in the ruffling).  Sort of the opposite of "flat"
irises where the standards are in the same plane as the falls, these
seem to be heading towards having the falls in the same plane as the

But many folks apparently find these traits very attractive.  Different

<Several recent introductions appear to have shorter standards than
falls.  I was taught, 20 years
                   ago, that the standards and falls should be of equal
