Fred Kerr's Bearded Iris Introductions
by year of introduction
Hybridizer of Fine Bearded Irises
WELCOME to my 2016 catalog of bearded irises. This is my 37th year of breeding bearded irises. The fourth year of drought presented challenges necessitating reducing the amount of space for growing by more than 75%. This has meant many good reselects were abandoned and many fewer seedlings grown.
Health issues did not allowed me the time and energy needed to do new introductions in 2015. In 2016 I am only doing one introduction, 'Eleanor Ditha Fink' in memory of a wonderful iris friend. Good candidates for introduction in 2017 have been transplanted and should be in good supply when introduced next year.
Rain in 2016 has improved our drought situation and this should give us good increase and wonderful bloom,
