This thread has truly been a gift to all of us! And the data base has grown exponentially!

And another big Thank You! to Sharlene for starting it!

I'm looking very forward to seeing what happens when Sharlene starts pollen daubing with irises. Considering the beautiful roses she's creating, I think we can expect great things!

For example, take a look at this:

It's listed as a Miniature Tall Bearded on the database here, which seems accurate. Some of the old MTBs were originally classified as TBs.

The AIS changed the "qualifications".....and added a couple "new" classes" years ago, and that muddied the water on quite a few of the "older" varieties. As is often the case, there are always some irises (and people, too Rolling my eyes. ) that don't "fit" into the group they are forced to BE in ! Sticking tongue out

Fortunately, when you look up the name in the database, it'll tell you what category is the right one (at least according to NGA). Thumbs up
