Thanks for this info Mike. I can see that my iris is misnamed, and that is 
disappointing, because I will have to break it to the donor, who I have 
always considered a good source. Problem is that a lot of these have gone 
through many hands, and mistakes are almost inevitable.

I don't want to change it's name under false pretences, so will look into 
this thoroughly.
I guess you are very busy Mike, but if you get a chance could you take a 
look at the photos of HELEN COLLINGWOOD, ELIZABETH NOBLE, and WABASH, and 
let me know your honest opinion?
The first two come from a source who has grown a 'colony' of some 40 cv's in 
isolation, and imported them from the U.S. originally. So I feel this is a 
good source, except that he only knows their names when they bloom!
My 'WABASH' came from an elderly iris society member, who I am sure beleives 
she has the correct plant, but any mistake would predate her acquisition of 
the rz, seeing as there has been so much difficulty with this cv.
Thanks for taking the time.
Cheers, Jan Clark
