I find it interesting that after a while you get the feelining of how partic
breeders tend to name their irises. Like Shreiners do after rivers etc. I
often geet a feel of who the breeder might be from the name. Barry Blyth's
naming style is different from most others, not for everything but often.
Looking forward to the day when I can work out my own naming style.
