2022 Joe Ghio Iris Introductions

“It all started thumbing through a FLOWER GROWER magazine in the summer of 1953. An article on the symposium of the 100 "best" irises of that year was featured. They described and pictured the top 5. #1 was a gold "Ola Kala" , a blue plicata, Blue Shimmer, (a new term to me), a blue, Blue Rhythm but #5 was the clinker, a real pink with a tangerine beard, Pink Cameo. Up to that point iris to me were purple or a sort of lavender. Schreiner's Gardens had an ad that for $5 you could select 7 from the list including most in the top 10 including that pink, Pink Cameo. I told my mother she should buy a collection to see if irises really come in all those colors and patterns. She said NO but you can spend your money on them. So, I cut lawns for 50 cents and when I had $5, I bought a money order and sent the order in. The course was set and the rest is history.” ~ Joe Ghio, Bay View Gardens
