Thank you all for commenting on this.   In the past, we have mostly 
followed Jane's guidelines but the question about the Iris descriptions 
got us thinking.  My style book says to italicize non-English words, so 
I have done that, even in common names.   I have to admit that I have 
accepted an author's styles when he/she seemed to have definite rules, 
so we have been inconsistent  about this in the Bulb Garden.
