CULT: Ugly Irises

I did some research in Mallorn on several of the older irises mentioned in my list of 
ugly irises.  Most have been 'critiqued' before but one post I'll quote:

From Graham Spencer on 9 Jan '97.  You can check it out for yourself but here it is.

'If the public-at-large are the ultimate arbiters of 'taste,' the reaction to BROWN 
LASSO and other exotically colored irises (amongst our customers) suggests that 
hybridizers have 'lost the plot.'"

she was ugly).
