> I suggest TWoI
for background genetics.............
I agree with Gerry here. It is in-depth and
laid out pretty well. The first time I read through the genetics portion
of it though.......... it went over my head. When I reread it - it made
for easier reading and easier to understand. There is a chart in there too
which shows you your chances of bringing out recessive genes, and the
probability of other genetic factors.
I understand Don Spoon is suppose to be coming out
with a book this year - with much of it based on genetics. Has anyone
heard when it is due out?
Otherwise............ the best book on genetics
would probably be the one you could write yourself.....................as you
study and become more familiar with your own iris and the crosses you make.
It's like painting................practice, practice,
practice............. the more you do the more knowledgeable you become,
resulting in better crosses and better work.

I will buck the trend and
recommend "The World of Iris." Conditionally,
still, by far, the best overall reference book available. But, if
just info on which cultivars to use as parents for which
traits, it is out
So, I suggest TWoI for background genetics, and talk with
for current hybridizing info.
BTW, the specialty books
on Louisianas, Japanese, and Siberians are all
