To expand on the information Anner has supplied, the American Dykes Medal
is actually a North American award for which irises hybridized in the U.S.
and Canada are eligible. The Australian Dykes Medal is an Australasian
award with the medal being bestowed on Australian and New Zealand
introductions in alternate years. I understand that the British Dykes medal
has recently become, in effect, an EU Dykes Medal with irises hybridized
anywhere in Europe being eligible to receive it. As Anner suggested, George
Sutton may be able to help you confirm these and other details concerning
the various Dykes Medals.
