|When I was collecting Daylilies, names did not become important to me until this last year or so. I just wanted as many as I could get in the colors I liked (greed is a horrible thing ). Now that I am collecting Irises with intent, I prefer named ones. However, I already had a few NOIDs that I just love and wouldn't trade, and will be getting NOIDs from some folks here that I just love, like Tom's Red (thank you, Tom ) Those will be carefully marked as NOIDS with the originator's name. Greed did overcome me a few weeks back and I got nearly 30 more NOIDs from mamajack. Those Irises I intend to keep well away from the named ones because I don't have a clue what they are as far as color, bloom time, etc. Thinking I will make a bed just for those and, when they do bloom, I will assign numbers or such to keep track. Also plan to be more careful about permanently marking the named ones than I have been with past plants so I don't end up with unintentional NOIDS. And with the Irises, I am working on grouping/planting them by complementary colors and bloom times, so knowing what they are will be important at the start.
