Most Comprehensive Iris Database?

NGOYEOctober 15, 2012

Hi everyone,

It is me again ... asking for help ... again!

Can ayone suggest a site I can go to to try and identify some of the irises we have on the property? I now have a list with names and descriptions and would like to start up a more complete database with pictures too. The people on the property are going to start trying to get photos as each row blooms but it would be nice to have an official photo to cross check against in case the plant that blooms is not what we think it is! :)

Thank you!

The American Iris Society has a site, and the competitor to this site (whose name shall never be typed here for fear of message rejection) both have good databases.
I can say that D-a-v-fifth letter of the alphabet- 's seventh letter of the alphabet a-r-d-e-n is the easiest place to check.

Here is a link that might be useful: AIS Iris Wiki Encyclopedia
