Re: TB: Anna Belle Babson vs. Beverly Sills

Barb  --  Just working from photos, the differences I see are these:

Beverly Sills' standards are laced, though not heavily, and more so than the falls. Anna Belle Babson also shows a tendency toward lace, but not really. Hager described BS as laced, but not ABB.

BS' styles are laced.  I can't see the styles on ABB's available photos.

BS' beard is definitely pale at the tip, whereas ABB's is pink all the way. Hager describes ABB's beard as narrow.

BS' falls have a "swag" effect; ABB's are slighter.

Hager describes BS as "coral pink", ABB as "intense deep pink". In the photos I've seen, the range of color of both includes both descriptions.

Subject: [iris] TB: Anna Belle Babson vs. Beverly Sills

Hi, all,

I have this wonderful pink clump that blooms every year. The person I got it from said it was Beverly Sills, but one of my friends who saw it is equally
adamant that it is Anna Belle Babson.

Can anyone tell me what might be the subtle differences between the two so I
can tell them apart?  It is my only clump so I'm not sure what I have.

Thanks!                 -- Barb
