Highly Recommended!


Chapters on culture and propagation, on pollination and seed growing, on diseases and pests or irises, and on the pigments and genetics of irises, are comprehensive to the average iris grower, yet invaluable to the more experienced irisarian.


Check out the AIS Storefront for purchase of the World of Irises book and other American Iris Society books, pamphlets, and related items.
