Hi Laurie and all,
HARVEST OF MEMORIES is a child of CORN HARVEST. So, it makes sense they look alike. I am sure that Lloyd can tell you what the improvements are in HOV over CH since he hybridized it. One I can tell you is that CH is listed as growing 30" and HOV is listed as growing 38".
In the Bulletin of the American Iris Society January 2001, on page 29, Walter Moores article Progenitors talks about CORN HARVEST being a reblooming progenitor and mentions a few of its children, including HARVEST OF MEMORIES.

HARVEST OF MEMORIES (Lloyd Zurbrigg, 1985) TB rebloomer
Rebloom reported in many states throughout zones 4-10 and Ontario.
I bought both HOM and CORN HARVEST from the same grower last year,
planted them in the same bed about 10' apart, and this spring they both
bloomed within a day of each other looking very much alike. The only
notable difference was that CH bloomed on a very short stalk down in the
fan, while HOM bloomed on a stalk of normal height.
Can anyone tell me if these two cvs are supposed to look alike, or if the
CH which Laetitia posted tonight (which doesn't look at all like the CH I
posted a few days ago) is an accurate depiction?
