In order to gain recognition in the show circuits, the iris would have to be
as pretty or prettier than any of the once blooming irises around it and have
the branching needed to succeed on the show bench.  I did a survey once at a
Region 7 fall meeting and, if memory serves well, most of the 100+ AIS
members, who reported on a blind questionnaire, said they bought irises for
the show bench.  If they couldn't show it, they didn't grow it.  (Remember--no
names.)

As for AIS garden awards for rebloomers, Lloyd seems to have found a way.  He
is best suited to address that.
