Beard or Bearded

In botany, the term “beard” refers to a group of hairs, as in the bearded iris pictured below. It may also refer to an awn, e.g. the bristle-like projection from a grain such as barley. The terms “beard”, “bearded” and “awn” do not apply to daylilies, but are included here for reference.
