|I'm not really sue, either, what kinds of protection a plant patent offers, but I would guess it couldn't be sold under that name. As to use in hybridizing, I would think that would fall outside the patent restrictions, as the "baby" WOULDN'T have the same name as the parent plant, but that's just a guess. Sad state of affairs when the lawyers get involved in our gardening !! Although, as I said earlier, I can understand the originators desire to be able to get the maximum financial benefit from their work. Unless the "iris lawyers" have their own "iris police", the patent process won't impede the "pass-a-long "iris trades....who would know?...and what could they do about it? ....Arlyn|
