Not all the awards are listed as yet, but tall bearded iris 'Florentine Silk' hybridized by Keith Keppel has won the top award, the Dykes Medal. The medal is given to AIS by the British Iris Society, but American & Canadian judges vote the award.

I tried taking a shot of the 2010 Mid-America catalog, I'm afraid it's not a very clear photo but does give some indication of the beauty of this iris. How wonderful for Keith. I hope we can add this iris to the database.
