HIST: Origin of Early Hybrids

I am not sure that "hybridized" is the correct term to use with iris
cultivars originating in the Honorabile-Madame Chereau era (mid-nineteeth
century). It is my understanding that these cultivars and others of that
era resulted from sowing the seeds from bee pods and making selections
among the resulting seedlings - not exactly the process of hybridizing as
we understand it today, which only began to be practiced towrd the end of
the nineteenth century.
