Harold; A good case in point for the argument that I have been making that each section or Iris group should create a post of recorder. That person would collect information above and beyond the official registration information for that sections Iris as they are introduced each year. Since for most sections this would be a acceptable task since most other than the tall beardeds average around 30-40 registrations a year. The recorder could pose questions to the hybridizer thgat may help to distinguish the iris in the future along with gathering a set of pictures. Think of how much better the discriptions could be in the sectional checklists and of course everyone will have an illustrated version soon.

Dave Niswonger to this day is hoping for a pink spuria. He keeps seeing a hint of pink that no one else sees.  A pink spuria for sure didn't exist in 1972. Another proof that registration information cannot be trusted.

Transition - spuria- (Ferguson 1972) - blend of pink shades to greyed pink.  This is kind of a light violet for me & still has the plastic  name lable in the pot that I sunk into the ground it's growing in.  So either it's not quite like it's description.  The wrong root arrived, or someone with a sense of humor has been switching the labels in the pots.
