As I indicated, tongue in cheek, in my first post on the subject, I think 
this is exactly the term to use if you want to start fights. It presents rich 
opportunity for disagreement on whether the extra parts of the bloom make the 
traditional forms better, or detract from them. 

I can't support "Austins" either since I think that would lead to confusion 
of a "Who's on first?" sort. Hearing "Austin Iris" most folks are going to 
assume an iris introduced by Austin, and what do you do when you need to talk 
about his own? "Austin's Austin iris....."
