You are given correctly used examples. Since in Iris we train ourselves to spot capital letters they seem at the moment to be clearer. But if we used the proper convention the names in single quotes and title case soon begin to jump out much like the caps. It is all a matter of getting used to a format.

Robert Pries has called our attention to an international convention in writing or printing cultivar names.  I am not entirely certain what "?Title Case? in single quotes" means exactly, however.
'Yaquina Blue' and 'Mesmerizer'--are these examples of what is meant, Robert?
I am perfectly content to follow whatever standard is pleasing.  I've been using capital letters simply to set the cv name off and make it clear what is being discussed.  I'm quite willing to change.
