Chris comments:

Actually irises don't have to wait quite that long to be considered 
historic. A closer analogy would probably be historic/antique 
automobiles. 
HIPS (Historic Iris Preservation Society) says that the cutoff date for 
an iris to be considered historic is that it have been registered 30 
years ago or more. 
HIPS membership info is available from: Ada Godfrey, Membership 
Secretary, 9 Bradford Street, Foxborough, MA 02035
