     This issue has been mentioned in Daylily circles too, where there is no 
official historic group.  Maybe a better solution is to have a two-tiered 
level of history.  This would mean one for the very old varieties, in this 
case, Irises, maybe using 1960 as the cut off date, and another using 1961 to 
30 years ago, at the present time meaning 1961 - 1972.
