Welcome to my Web Page for 2023. We would like to thank all our new customers and especially those customers who have ordered from us for many years. For if not for you we would not be able to enjoy growing and hybridizing the iris.
We were very pleased with the awards that we received from the American Iris Society in 2022. Topping the list was the Clarence G. White award for an arilbred of more than 50 percent aril. ALAKAZAM was the winner. Autumn Explosion was runner up for the Dykes Medal. Dark Wonder was runner up for the Knowlton Medal. Waves Of Joy, Bam, Firefly Frenzy, Warrior Prince and Lavender Moonbeams were Award of Merit winners. You’re So Veined placed 3rd in the voting for tall bearded Honorable Mention. Visual Pleasure, Eye Of Excellence and Lucky Dragon were also Honorable Mention winners. Roger’s Outside The Lines and Above All The Lights also won Honorable Mentions.
So far this winter we are getting quite a bit of much needed rain. Nine inches total so far with more to come. I hope it continues so the multi year drought is a thing of the past.
I will be traveling to Dallas, Texas for the American Iris Society’s annual convention during April of 2023. I hope to see many of my customers and friends at this event.
In the meantime enjoy your dreams of blooming iris and have a great iris bloom season in 2023,
