Re: iris names

Elm you seem to know a great deal about iris names. Can you tell me if there are two iris called Pass the Wine? I have an iris by that name and received a picture from a lady in south america that is identical to mine. They are a bronze self with a bright orange beard. But I have seen an iris called Pass the Wine in more than one website and catalogue that is distintly different, being rose s. with darker rose falls. I thought it would be impossible to have two irises named the same thing but as you pointed out, maybe it's not. Thanks for any information you might have.  pearl

       The change to Joseph's Coat Katkamier to be "PC" has nothing to do with its having a biblical name.  There was a wild Louisiana iris introduced with the same name some years back.  That can be confusing to hybridizers when they come across an iris' parentage with one of the parents being listed as Joseph's Coat.  It leads one to wonder which iris is that parent.  A recent problem occurred with aril hybrids.  There were 2 irises known as Bronze Beauty.  Barr had originally used the name for a TB in 1884, which appeared in the 1939 AIS Checklist.  So now we have a regelia hybrid that is now PC.....it is now called Bronze Beauty VanTubergen (VanTubergen in Holland being the originator of the regelia hybrid).  It just helps avoid confusion.
