The catalogs of hybridizers are often a good source. They will tell you which irises they find to be of value with branching, parenting etc.  Of course, you are always 7 to 10 years behind if you depend on the lines of others for all your material. 

Develop your own 'line' and only use the work of others for 'out crosses' to add characteristics your seedlings don't possess. Free tip! <g>
