Re: Dykes Eligibles

The AIS Judges vote for the Dyke's Medal winner and other variety/specie medal winners each year.  They are supposed to have seen it growing and blooming over a two year period, and vote for the one best from their area--that way, when an Iris wins a medal, one knows that it should grow and bloom all over the country, in all soils and climates.  Yes, the vote can be influenced by more votes from the more populated areas--but the number of judges is restricted to a percentage of members in a region, so that does somewhat cut down the populated-area vote.  Refer to the new AIS Judges Handbook for further discussion.  Carryl Meyer  RVP Region 11 (MT.,ID.,WY)
