As a comment about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris germanica 'Florentina'), zuzu wrote:

Iris florentina actually is a species rather than a cultivar, but this species is now a synonym for Iris germanica. It is so different from most of the other germanicas, however, that it is still commonly sold as Iris florentina, with 'Florentina" treated as a cultivar name.

I just try to modify the name in "Iris florentina" but it is considered like a Iris germanica synonym by ATP and I think this is not a good information so could you modify both pages (remove synonym in Iris germanica page and change cultivar name for species in Iris florentina) ?

Thank you
