Annual Iris Naming Contest 2019


Annual Iris Naming Contest Now CLOSED

Schreiner Family Hybrid

Each October we select one of our seedlings, never before introduced, to be named by you, our fellow Iris enthusiasts. This year’s candidate presents a lively palette of color, very logically (although unimaginatively) named C843-3. This newcomer stands 35 inches tall and blooms middle of the season.

Contest open to US residents only. Entry deadline is 9:00 p.m. Pacific, Monday, October 28, 2019.  The winner will be notified via email in November 2019. Winner will receive one plant of the named Iris (shipped summer 2020) and a $25 gift certificate to Schreiner’s Iris Gardens (to be mailed to the winner along with a copy of the 2020 catalog in the spring of 2020).

Contest Rules: One name entry per person please. Suggested name must not already be registered with the American Iris Society. Any name submitted which is already registered with the American Iris Society will be discarded. You can search for registered Iris names on the AIS encyclopedia at Contest open to US residents only. Prize will be shipped to a US address only. Schreiner’s Iris Gardens reserves the right to select the name from the entries received by the contest entry deadline of 9:00 p.m. (Pacific), October 28, 2019. If no suitable name is submitted, Schreiner’s Iris Gardens reserves the right to name the seedling.

Thank you to all who submitted an entry.


The contest winner will be notified via email.
