Source Book for All Named Iris?

greekbecky2(6)September 23, 2010

There are so many iris out there a single source that lists all of them?

Maybe a book or a website?

I checked on the American Iris Society and even they don't have them all.

Any advice on where I could find something like this?

I think there is a registry at the AIS but you have to be a member to get access. The registry only lists irises that have been registered (no duh, Renee). But that is the most complete list available, as far as I know.

The American Iris Society is putting together a wiki where you can enter the info about the iris and a photo. I have provided the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: AIS wiki
