Re: SP: Spage Age Terminology

From: "Title, CDR Lynn A." <titlel@spawar.navy.mil>

I agree that "space age" is altogether too '50's, and I don't have a better
term to offer (yet), but when I hear "appendaged" iris I think of Triffids
(dating myself again, aren't I?) 

I've liked the terms "flounced" "spooned" and/or "horned" as clean and
specific, though who knows what Mike Sutton will come up with next,
requiring a brand-new specific term. How about "extended" irises?

Anner's suggestion of 'Appendaged Irises' certainly would be appropriate,
and I like it, but would it be hard to  "sell" the public?  Telling a
gardener that this is a "double" <flower> is an easy term to get out and
remember, but an "appendaged" <flower> may be a mouthful.

Is this something our Iris community could work on to get consensus on a new
term?  Could it be presented to AIS for re-consideration?
