Re: flower terminology
Amy: Are you referring to the color combination designated as "Neglecta" or
the species Iris neglecta. I believe one is directly related to the other
since what I have photographed and grown as I. neglecta is an iris wherein
the standards are a lighter blue color than that of the falls. The I.
neglecta has (and this is from memory since my slide file is not presently
readily available) pale blue standards and bluish-violet falls with
reticulations (stripes/veins). "Neglecta" is a specific color pattern as is
"plicata, amoena, luminata, glaciata, etc."
Hope this helps.
