Re: Reg 2 Symposium

Amy writes

:If you read this list or any similar list you will find that nearly all
:of these iris are found in the Big Two's catalogs (Cooley's and
:Schreiner's) and hardly anything that *isn't* in these catalogs.  Is
:this because the Big Two take the trouble to stock these award winners;
:that they are the hybridizers; or that most of the iris sold come from
:the Big Two?  Or just coincidence?

Schreiner's and Cooley's make it their business to list the currently
popular TB irises. In most cases they are not the hybridizers. And
although they do have a large share of the market, I would doubt that
that has much effect on the popularity poll. Both nurseries offer such
an extensive listing of recent-vintage TBs that it's hard to imagine
potential symposium winners lurking in the ranks of their unlisted.

Happy irising, Tom.
