WELCOME to my 2015 catalog of bearded irises. This is my 36th year of breeding bearded irises. The fourth year of drought presents challenges necessitating reducing the amount of space for growing by more than 75%. This has meant many good reselects have been abandoned and many fewer seedlings grown.
Health issues over the past year have not allowed me the time and energy needed to do new introductions in 2015. Good candidates for introduction in 2016 have been transplanted and should be in good supply when introduced next year.
In spite of a poor rain year increase has been good and the plants look very healthy. We are looking forward to an early bloom and we hope temperatures do not make for a short seaon.
