Since I asked my question, your answer is the first that I received.
You refer to Bob' answer and I never received it.
Can you send me the other related messages.

There 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.

Am I wrong?

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

Is it thru?
