This past weekend I met with one of our local iris hybridizers, Chuck
Chapman, who has introduced some iris that have been discussed here
recently. He provided me at that time with a list of his new 1999
introductions which follows and I have also included a listing of his
previous introductions.
He has an iris catalog available each year and you may order it direct from
him if you wish. Chuck says it should be ready soon for mailing and sorry
but he has no e-mail.

You may contact him directly at:

Georgian Bay region of Ontario. It was found floating in the lake during a
summer vacation. It has proven to be very hardy and vigorous and is fertile.
It should do well in cooler climate areas. The flowers are larger and the
plant taller than Iris versicolor (blue flag). White with violet blue lines
and a bright yellow signal at the center of the falls. When grown in the
same garden conditions as bearded iris it has five flowers and is about 30"
tall. It should be taller and have more flowers when grown in a pond. It
appears to be a natural cross of VERSICOLOR and VIRGINICA.....$15.00

NORTHERN VALENTINE,(1997), Setosa, E, 20".  Blue-violet self.  Very strong
growing & bloom habits The falls are large, heart shaped and semi-flaring.

The flowers are wide, flared and have strong substance and good form. The
branching is a bit close to the stock but it has 8-10 buds, and with
sequential blooms remains in bloom for close to four weeks. With the colours
of the Canadian flag and being a border bearded the name seems a natural.

ERAMOSA MISS,(1998)  BB, 24", M.  Sib to CANADIAN BORDER with the same
vigour and hardiness.  Well formed very ruffled. S light  apricot pink; F
apricot pink  with a lighter colouration around the coral -pink beard.  A
charming and delightful iris that will do well on the show bench or in the
garden.  89-278-5 (VICTORIAN FRILLS X CORAL BEAUTY)........$19.00

CANADIAN STREAKER  (1997) TB, M, 31".  A variegated foliage variety that is
hardy, cold tolerant & leaf-spot resistant. Unrelated to other variegated
iris. Attractive light blue flowers. The foliage is heavily streaked cream
with a dark red-purple base that gives attractive three coloured foliage.
88-364-E (CUP RACE X LACED COTTON)	$15.50

GARDEN BRIDE, (1998) TB, 37", ML. I have found white Iris (particularly ones
with ruffles and lace) difficult to grow and perform in this climate,. This
white variety performs well year after year with good increase even when
neglected and should grow and perform well in areas where good whites with
ruffles usually don't. A very ruffled clean white self with eight buds,
having a  long bloom
