Re: AIS: class question

Beats me.  I was told by the show judges that there wasn't a place for
it.  They said if it was shorter, it would be a nice BB.  They suggested
I hope for a year in which it has bigger flowers.  I may hope for
different judges and cut the stalk shorter <g>

I had thought that the original MTBs were talls (i.e., miniature TALL
bearded) with smaller flowers than regular TBs, but apparently that's
not true.  There are some old TBs that have flowers smaller than the
current standard, I think.

I thought it made a really cute stalk, but apparently it doesn't fit
into a category.

                   Iris, but not the flower size required.  So, what
class would such a cultivar go into?>
