  I'm thinking that the reason above is why similar irises (in color pattern 
for instance) are introduced...along with the time of the season that they 
may bloom, i.e. an early bloomer introduced, then a similar iris that's a 
late bloomer.    Or that if one tends to prefer a colder climate (as 
evidenced by the above excerpt) then one of a similar pattern would be 
introduced as a warmer climate bloomer.
Gives us all a chance to grow that rainbow effect no matter where we 
live...ain't irises grand?
