As far as I know, there has never been an official
designation and acceptance of the term "arilmedian." The Aril Society
International yearbook for 2005, in its Glossary in the back, gives:
"Arilbred Median. A small arilbred whose bearded forebears included dwarf
species." I have read where some people classed any short arilbred as an
arilmedian. In my mind, I use arilmedian to mean that the iris refers
to a seedling that came from the cross of a pure aril or an arilbred and an iris
that is officially classed by AIS as a median. I also believe it
has to fit into the size ranges for medians, too, as one can get a very tall
arilbred from such a cross. I use the term in an unofficial way, of
course, as I recently named and registered a little arilbred, and ASI gave it an
OGB- classification (oncogeliabred). Another unofficial term some of us
use is "stol-pum" to keep track of a dwarf arilbred that is a cross of the aril
(regelia) I. stolonifera x I. pumila.
