|Hi everyone! Thanks for the further comments, all of which are very helpful. I am thinking that it may be a good idea to add a paragraph concerning the attempted identification of plants, whether historic or modern iris and some of the problems that can arise from attaching a possibly wrong name to a no ID plant---if one is not absolutely sure of the identity. I do not indulge in trying to identify plants (except those that grow in my own garden) that have lost their names for various reasons, especially historic, as this is not at all an area in which I am competent. However, I often see photos that people post here and there with a plea for identification attached and perhaps this kind of thing should be addressed.
To answer your question Lucy, no, there is no local iris club here. There is only the SFIB, with which I am not affiliated as I do not share their opinions and also because of terrible problems that I (and others) have had with these people in the past.
I am indeed planning on posting this text on Facebook, even though I do not believe that it will be well received; at least that way it will be seen, even if people don't like it. I do believe that even people who have been in the iris world long enough not to be outright beginners anymore might find it useful.
