are two answers to your question. Some rises are from true bulbs (beardless)
like the Dutch iris and others from rhizomes which have families that are
bearded and others that are beardless. Bob's answer of the bulb irises being the
most grown using $ as the measuring is accurate if bulb type irises are included
in the question. If your question is limited to rhizome type irises, then tall
bearded are about a 9 to 1 favorite over all other rhizome type irises. Tall
bearded have a greater growing range, colors and patterns than the
beardless rhizome types. So far I have grown almost all of the various kinds.
They are all nice and have different characteristics for different situations of
garden and climate.

When I read about irises, it seems the bearded iris are the most used
