Thanks for the mini history lesson. It answered a question that I had. 
Just a couple of days ago, I saw a reference in a catalog 
(Superstition's section of historics I think)that mentioned that a 
particular iris (can't rmember which one now) had once been blacklisted, 
and I wondered what that meant...Now I know! Thanks!
