Re: Re:photo

The HIPS people have better descriptions of many of the important historical
irises. Those descriptions concentrate on the distinguishing characteristics
of the true cultivar versus the imposters or look likes. Since Wabash is an
important historical, you might be able to tap into that information system
to see if you can identify the look like.

Re my soap box email about not relying on identification from photos over
the internet. I was simply trying to get Andrzej to not feel as confident as
he had expressed. As a commercial garden owner I don't try to identify
unknowns/mislabeled clumps. I either sell them as unknown clumps for a
tremendous discount or I simply destroy them. Occasionally I have had a
clump not bloom true that I was able to identify because I was able to do a
side by side comparison with something correctly identified that was
blooming at that same time.
