Re: Haft marks

Linda,  that narrower part of the innermost (proximal) part of the fall was
called the "claw."  I occasionally see the term still used, and it is
especially useful with floral form types such as spurias.  The claw and the
haft (that part along side the beard) both have characteristic veining and
marking in bearded irises, but as hafts got wider and wider, the distinction
between haft and claw has tended to be obscured.

All bearded irises have haft veining, but in glaciatas and luminatas the veins
do not have anthocyanin pigments in or with the veins, although the carotenoid
marks remain.  In the ones described as having "clean hafts" they are called
such because the remaining marks are hidden by the standards--also much wider
than they once were.
