Re: iris lingo

Hello again.  Here is what the AHS says about HALO in its "guide to more mean-
ingful registrations for you and your Society" -- AMERICAN HEMEROCALLIS SOCIETY
	Under "color Patterns"  The following...will explain the recognized
color patterns for purposes of registraton:

(lists self, blend, polychrome, bitone, bicolor, and this)

EYED OR BANDED.  Adistinguishing pattern on many daylilies is a band of a 
different or darker shade of color at the juncture of the segments and the
throat.  This is called an 'eyezone'.  If the band occurs on the petals only
it is called a 'band'.  If the band of color is faint or lightly visible, 
it is called a 'halo'.  A watermark is a wide strip of a lighter shade where
the segment color meets the throat, giving a watermark to the flower.  (directions for the description on the registration form:
Circle or underline the word 'halo', 'band' or 'eyezone' that applies to your
cultivar and give the color to the right in a space provided for that.  Briefly
in your own words give the color in mass, the color of the petals and color of the sepals.  Color Dictionary terms are not necessary, in fact they should not]
be used since most of our members do not havae access to Color Dictionaries

end of this section.

I think this clarifies my posting about a halo.  There is no guideline that
mentions 'edge' but this is a 1988 Daylily Journal and might not have
yet recognized the explosion in edges of daylilies.

I don't know what AIS has for guidelines.  Anyone out there have AIS's 
guidelines for registering iris which applies here?
