Each October we select one of our seedlings, never before introduced, to be named by you, our fellow Iris enthusiasts. This year’s candidate is a bold, vibrant purple seedling, very logically (although unimaginatively) named YY63-A. This orange-bearded, bi-tone stands 33″ tall and blooms mid-season. Send us your name suggestion via the entry form below. Contest open to US residents only. Entry deadline is 9:00 p.m. Pacific, Tuesday, October 20, 2015. The winner will receive one plant of the named Iris (shipped summer 2016) and a $25 gift certificate to Schreiner’s Iris Gardens (mailed with a copy of the 2016 catalog in the spring of 2016). We look forward to receiving your suggested name!
While you’re contemplating that perfect name, take a look at Benita Green Lee’s terrific write-up on how hybridizers choose names for their seedlings, “Putting a Name to That Face“.
The contest winner will be notified via email in early November.
Sharing our passion for Iris,
The Schreiner Family
