Does anyone grow any flats? Saw it in a friend's garden yesterday. Intro in 1950 by Ballard. I find it intriguing....

It’s okay to not know all the answers.

I love the flatties. Sue's growing Japanesque, my favorite. The closest thing I have to a flattie is Judy Mogil, a TBI with a "flattie" appearance.

With me, I do not like them as iris are 3 up 3 down. Saying that when I was doing my one on one Judges Training to become a judge, Barry found out I did not like them so in Keith's garden I had to judge them. After a couple I found I could judge even tho I do not have one flattie...

I don't care for them at all. Looks like an iris which someone sat on.

I had NEW PERSPECTIVE at one point, but I didn't care for it -- the top three (are they the standards?) wanted to go about half-way up rather than laying flat, and that's my #1 gripe with standards -- I don't care for the ones that spread or "blow" open. So someone else gave it a good home.

Paul, I believe that when you want something added to the database you click on "Add a new plant to the Database," or something like that. And I believe it's Dee who approves it and gets it in the listing, as long as it's been registered.

I found this listing on the TWiki: http://wiki.irises.org/bin/vie...

I notice the bearded are all TB. Are there other classes of bearded that are flat?

I have requested that it be added to the data base. I do not care for the looks of New Perspective but like the exotic look of Rythm.

Rhythm is already in the database, Paul. You're misspelling it as 'Rythm.'

I think New Perspective is pretty. It looks like a chiffon party dress.

Evan, I think it's interesting that the TWiki link you provided includes Judy Mogil as one of the flatties, but misspells it 'JudyMogul.' Surely there couldn't be a second iris with that variation of the name, could there? Odd for a site as authoritative as that one to make that kind of error, I think.

I like New Perspective too, Polly, and I love Sue's photos of it. The flatties remind me of Japanese irises. That's why I like them so much, I suppose.

There are quite a few mistakes on the iris wiki. It's only as good as the people inputting. Many are excellent, some a little haphazard, I think. Plus, it grew so fast, I'm sure it's going to take a lot of time to check for errors.

But so's Wiki, and it probably doesn't have the grace to be embarrassed. Smiling

At least now you know the entry's already there.

Paul, not to be embarrassed. I've often told my husband I wished they had a spell check for plants. You can't believe how long it took me to remember how to spell typhifolia.
