Not surprisingly, "Lute Song" and "Pink Lady" are equally specious as names
for Japanese iris. By AIS registration both these names have been granted
to TB's, LUTE SONG (Tompkins, 60) - a medium pink self, and PINK LADY
(Ketchum, 53) - another pink self. There was mention on this list earlier
today that certain nurseries with flexible scruples "borrow" officially
recognized iris names for items they market. Here we have three exhibits
for the prosecution.
