Thanks Jeff. I will pay close attention to Hamblin's introductions. My 
objective are multi-fold: I want to extend my bloom season. I want to test 
candidates for heat tolerance. I what to examine candidates common ancestors. 
I want to incorporate the more adaptable candidates in my hybridizing.

I also concur with your Dyke's assessment. It favors larger commercial 
operations with wide distribution. It favors hybridizers in areas with larger 
populations. It favors hybridizers with name recognition. It favors mid 
season tall bearded iris. It favors pretty bloom above overall plant habit. 
And, too a degree, it even favors the more politically adapt.

The irises themselves? They don't care so much about the medal. They favor 

Do I think a late from an obscure hybridizer will ever win the Dyke's? Of 
course. I believe in divine intervention!
