[iris talk]HYB: Trivia

From: StorYlade@aol.com

In a message dated 1/28/1999 8:18:54 PM Central Standard Time, IRISROT@aol.com

<< Until an iris is grown all across the U. S. we
 really don't know if it will grow or not. >>

Once upon a time, in the distant days of ole, hybridizers sent rhizomes of
potential introductions to gardens around the country.  These gardeners would
report to the hybridizer on the growth of their irises.  Then the irises would
be sent to national conventions to be further tested.  The process could
stretch into 10 years from cross to introduction.
