Decadence and the AIS awards system

Not to annoy anyone, but Decadence isn't eligible for the Dykes Medal; the highest award it could hope for is the Wister medal (not that I think it deserves this) because it is an iris that was bred and developed in Australia.  The American Dykes medal is ONLY for irises bred and developed in the United States or Canada.  Please remember that the "American" Dykes medal is a British Iris Society award that is offered through the AIS.  There are two other Dykes medals:  the one offered to Australian and (I think) New Zealand irises that is exclusively for those plants bred and developed there and and the other available to either British or European irises, provided the breeder is a member of the BIS.
