Re: AIS: Iris of the Milennium (sic)

Graeme Grosvenor has named an iris SYDNEY 2000, obviously for the 
Olympic games (and not just for the Sydney postcode). It won 2nd place 
in the 1998 Premio Firenze, and will be listed in next years catalogue. 
My guess is it's a Silverado offspring, Probably Silverado X Timescape, 
but don't quote me, please.
Anybody could register an iris as Millenium 3, or Year 2001, New 
Millenium, etc. You would surely just have to be the first one there 
with the name. The iris would be a secondary consideration. 
You may find that this option gets taken up by some enterprising nursery 
chain, and the said plant is one already registered under a different 
name. (A train of thought stirred by the current discussions on the 
hemerocallis list.) 
As far as selecting the iris which has contributed the most to irisdom 
in the 2nd millenium, IMHO this should be along the lines of a cultivar 
or a species that has adapted happily to a wide range of environments, 
or contributed in a major way to the modern day hybrids.
Cheers, Jan Clark
