Here's a thought/question.  If memory serves me correctly, there is a patent
system for roses and some other types of plants produced commercially.  Is
there merit to introducing a "patent system" for irises?  From the average
consumer's standpoint, would it not ensure that the cultivar being bought is
accurately named, AND registered with the AIS?  Might it demonstrate an
"authenticity" to the average catalog browser who might not know the
difference between irises "warehouses" and garden grown irises?

Or....are plant patents bogus?
