I have somewhere upwards of 60 living at my house! I have 'ideas' on names for some of them, and some are in the "probably NEVER had a name group", but they are all nice plants. I really enjoy the "hunt" for a name, and never turn down a chance to add one to the garden. My only gripe with NOIDs is the folks out there in iris land, who scan the iris catalogs, picking out an iris that looks like a match to the NOID that they grow, and then forever after, use that name for their NOID....without any further research into iris itself! Even saying," It looks pretty similar to XXX", can be bad when trading an iris, because the recipient then might just drop the "pretty similar", and call it XXX! The "miss-named", and un-named iris problem has been around for years, and will continue to be a growing problem as social media sites are increasingly used as "trading posts", and amateur hybridizers pass along their un-registered creations. I really think the AIS should include, in their iris shows, a category for "Best of Show-NOID"! I realize their is a "Seedling" category, and that takes care of the Hybridizers, both amateur, and pro, but perhaps a "totally NOID section" would put some sense of "legal precedence" to having a NOID, or two, in ones garden, and help control the spread of those traveling around under an "alias"...Arlyn.
