TB: HIST: Mrs. George Darwin - beard strangeness

  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] TB: HIST: Mrs. George Darwin - beard strangeness

In preparing this bloom season's photos for inclusion on my website, I 
found something quite unique that I didn't notice when observing the 
living flowers in bloom.  MRS. GEORGE DARWIN is an old historic with an 
exquisite vein pattern on pristine white flowers, but the feature I now 
find most intriguing is the beards.  Note the "ridge" (crest?) that 
extends below the primary beard.  I don't believe I've ever seen 
anything like it before.  A spaceage precursor, perhaps?  Are there 
other similar examples of which anyone is aware? Is this a fairly 
common phenomenon which I have simply been overlooking?
