Re: rot parade/miniature tall bearded diploids

Very few MTBs look like historic TBs...the MTB class has quite strict
standards for size of flower and stalk, and as a result most modern MTBs have
a much more balanced and graceful appearance than an old TB such as QUEEN OF
MAY, MA MIE, GRACCHUS, or INNOCENZA.  I love all these old TBs, but for
overall form and balance the MTBs win hands down.  Some of the old historic
irises are MTBs, however, e.g. HONORABILE, which is to say the size of flower
and stalk matches the MTB standards.  Clarence Mahan in VA
