|Thank you for wanting more information about the Tall Bearded Iris
Pictorial ReferenceŠ book.
When I began to grow tall bearded irises about twenty years ago I didn't know irises had names. As the years went by I became a "collector" of irises. The difference between someone who collects irises and a person who just grows them is one word, identification. Identification is what the Tall Bearded Iris Pictorial Reference book is about. With over 700 color photographs of tall bearded irises you will quickly find this book to be the most helpful and reliable source of information on tall bearded irises. Along with the photograph of the cultivar the year of introduction, name of hybridizer, height and bloom season are listed for each iris. There has never been a book exclusively published for tall bearded irises until now. See irises from 1960's through 2000 introductions or read about the American Dykes medal winners.
The book is softcover, perfect bound with 160 pages. It is 6X9, from cover to cover you will find quality. Still have questions, follow this link.
The Tall Bearded Iris Pictorial Reference book has been purchased by several Public Libraries, but if you can't find it at your local library be sure to put a request in for the book with the librarian. The iris is a much neglected subject in the literary world and as irisarians you need to spread the word.

On a more personal note, would you like to see what made me write the book? Take the time to go through my website . Many people have inquired about when the 2nd edition would be getting published. I am working on another book but starting a business www.tnsalvage.com has taken up just about all of the time I have. But every spring I am out taking pictures of iris, so hopefully once Bud's is established more time can be spent on the next book.
