Ran into something that puzzled me in a catalog last night:  a tall bearded
iris hybridized by Hamblen ('83) named KAREN, a pink and blue-violet bitone.
Sounds pretty; but how was it able to be registered under that name when there
was already a KAREN?  The 1949 checklist (and the Iris Pond catalog) lists
another TB by Morrison in 1924, a red-purple blend.  ??? Just one of those
