Subject: [iris-photos] AIS Dykes Medal restrictions


It says on page 28 in the Handbook for Judges and Show Officials that the Dykes Medal honors William Rickatson Dykes (1877-1925), the English botanist and author of the great monograph The Genus Iris.
It also says that this award is restricted to irises first introduced in the United States or Canada.
Isn't there a slight paradox in banning English registered irises from an award supposed to honor an English botanist?
you can see the page 28:
