I was once told I could make a living wholesaling irises if I planted and maintained 5 acres or more.   It's VERY possible that some of the smaller or busier wholesalers aren't real careful about names and garden records?  I know one or two that might have this problem.  Once every year or two I find an iris growing in a spot I don't remember planting it!  I've either mixed in a rhizome or forgot to note one on the map!  Imagine what would happen if one were growing large quantities for wholesale and forgot to make a notation.
Betty, factor in accidents of nature and the problem snowballs. I came home tonight to find the new bed I had carefully planted and labled and mapped, in chaos. Either the resident armadillo or my neighbor's dog had rearranged the whole thing. Most of these are irises I have growing elsewhere so I will be able to recognize them when they bloom.
