Photo Essay: Historic varieties from 1931

By Mike Unser

A selection of varieties I have grown that were introduced in 1931. The 1930s saw many changes in tall bearded irises, including the first good, tall yellows, hardy tall whites and blues, and fun new blends. European hybridizers were still dominating the new advances, but American hybridizers were catching up fast and giving them competition.













The World of Irises is the official blog of The American Iris Society. The American Iris Society exists to promote all types of irises.
