There is hardly anything that does not have some connection with the world
of iris. I believe I am not far wrong in assuming the names of the
following iris were inspired by Diana, Princess of Wales, whose life ended
so tragically over the weekend:

ROYAL WEDDING (TB, F. Carr, R81 - not introduced)
DIANA BLUE (SI, S. Varner, 83)
LADY DI (MTB, W.T. Varner, 89)
HIGH DI (SI, T. Aitken, 95)

There are possibly others, as well.
