PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
For an older book - - it is quite indepth. All drawings and photographs are in black and white. This book discusses everything from companion plants, to culture, to progression of bloom, to hybridizng, to backgrounds of some of the first hybridizers.
Not only does this book cover Tall Bearded irises, but also the Median irises, Arilbreds, Beardless irises, and the bulbous irises.
My favorite part was the chapter where they discuss crossing between species. Yours may be the chapter where they discuss pests and diseases, or using irises in a rock garden.
It is written well and easy to understand. A lot of material is covered and you are sure to learn something new.
