HYB: R & Is

From: Mike Lowe <mlowe@worldiris.com>

The discussion of how many seedlings it takes to find an iris of
distinction reminds me -- it is almost time for the '1998 Registrations and
Introductions' to hit the street. (actually, the pre-paids are going in the
mail today as per Nancy Pocklington, AIS Publication Sales) It is always of
interest to see how many hybridizers have come down with a 'Junk Attack.'

The symptoms vary -- but usually consist of registering more than 40
cultivars. This in itself is not particularly harmful to anything except
the waste of names and wear and tear on the pocketbook of the breeder.
However, sometimes the whole galumphing herd is introduced and marketed.
This does have an impact.
