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?

Amazon. com has great books on Iris. Dh just bought me one called The Gardeners Iris book. by William Shear. Very informative easy to understand, Lots of info on all kinds of Iris.

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
