Have you gotten any of the magazines that are gardening related? The ones I can think of are Martha Stewart Living, Garden Gate, Northern Gardener, ChicagoLand, Birds and Bloom or Horticulture?  Seen any Iris articles lately?

Last year Birds and Blooms did an article last year on Francis and Ruth Rogerís Meadowbrook Iris.  That is the only thing I have seen.

Was there anything in any magazine regarding the Convention in Fresno or Portland?  Not that I saw.  Who should be pushing that type of informative articles?

So, what would all of you suggest we do?  Anyone know anyone who is anyone with one of these magazineís so we can get some good articles and pictures.  How about a good published writer who would be willing to write an article with pictures?

No one knows about Rebloomers and they havenít any idea how nicely our Iris bloom.

I also agree with Harold. I personally believe we are doing something wrong in the TB do not have better or more press among general gardeners.

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?
