Just right off the top of my head, how can a flower be balanced or in proportion if the standards are noticeably shorter?  Picturing this in my mind, does not give me a “balanced” picture??

the shorter lacy standards seemed to make this one quite different.

This quote is from Margie V's comment about Mid-America #12.  I agree that it is an absolutely gorgeous iris. 

 

Several recent introductions appear to have shorter standards than falls.  I was taught, 20 years ago, that the standards and falls should be of equal length.  A plant was inferior if there was a noticeable difference. 

 

I've quickly scanned my judges training book and can't find this under either balance or form. (garden section) Is there anything in the book about short standards?  Something I'm missing?
