Yes!

That is Carlos' site and he originally set out to make a complete set of every iris Schreiners introduced.
He posts occasionally to this forum.

Happily for us he's branched out to other iris as well.

Oh, good for you; you found Carlos' site. Take a look at his links page for great information on different iris sellers. Here's another site to make you drool- the Delaware Valley Iris Society pages. Lots of wonderful photos of irises.

Carlos's list helped me to ID 2 of the old Iris I found here at my 122 year old home. I refer to it often.

The photos are spectacular. Is Carlos the photographer?

All your fault, aquawise. I spent half the night clicking on Carlos' photos.
