:A recent example of how risky it is is the arilbred registered as BRONZE
:BEAUTY!....I grow the original BRONZE BEAUTY (Barr 1884) and was horrified
:that a modern iris would be allowed to have the name of a great historic
:iris.  Clarence Mahan in VA

BRONZE BEAUTY is actually an aril rather than arilbred, and (I think)
quite venerable itself. I don't have my checklist here, so I may be
remembering wrong, but I think it dates from around the turn of the
century, although it was not registered until later. If Sharon is listening,
I'm sure she can give us the straight dope. But, yes, it is quite a horrid
coincidence. BRONZE BEAUTY (the aril) is discussed a briefly in _TWoI_.
