Re: iris lingo
Carolyn: Re your query about the prominences that abound on the end of the
beards of space age iris. The only ones that I have seen that really took my
fancy were ruffled spoon-shaped additions. They were on two iris that I saw
at my very first AIS convention in '74 at Roanoke. The irises were hybridized
by Lloyd Zurbrigg and were named MISS VENUS & MISS JUPITER. To put it rather
crudely, I don't like horny iris.
