U-uuuuu got it, Our Borer! 
We should just keep it simple and loose, and anyone who wants to can 
participate in the spirit of true parity of opinion. People can read the 
responses, or some of the responses, and make their own evaluations and 
determinations. No need to subject it all to a lot of statistical analysis. 
It does not matter how many "votes'"an iris gets, or any "ranking,"  or 
whether something that does well for someone else does crappy for you, 
because any iris mentioned will be thought to be a superior garden plant by 
someone somewhere, and that is good to know. 

Just count off the very best of the best that you grow, as determined by you 
on your own terms of garden-worthiness, the irises that you love and repect 
for the wonderful plants they are. A celebration! Root for your great ones! 
Make it 30 if you got them!  

Probably we should stipulate to pallida and pseudacorus since they would 
probably perform well even in a closed closet....and HELEN COLLINGWOOD, which 
Clarence and I agree is probably the best iris of the century to date. 

Going off to start thinking about my list now. 

Hope someone else will play with us, Borer.
