How much is true, How many irises have the correct name. If only 5% of the
people Make mistakes accidentally or purposeful . How that could magnify
over the years. I can see people at HIPS are correct some of this. Just too
many people and too many iris. 

If someone broke in your house and garden and destroyed all your records.
labels, and planting charts  tomorrow. How many could you identify honestly
and correctly? How many would you not be sure of?
We all could think of lots of ways an iris can be misnamed. I don't have
any answers. While I am new at this my first purchase from a award winning
hybridizer  was Song Of Norway.( when it bloomed it was a dark blue-black)
Should I go back to K-Mart.
