The first recorded registration of a hybrid Bearded Iris dates back centuries. Although these are on the younger side of one hundred, we have assembled here in these pages, for your shopping convenience, many of the Bearded Iris in our catalog which are deemed to be "historical". Listed here are varieties introduced in 1995 or before. As an added bonus, they are all currently on sale!
This summer Schreiner's Iris Gardens will plant a new bed dedicated to historical Iris in our Display Gardens. You might consider the same for your garden, or simply intersperse these tried and true bargain varieties among the modern beauties already found there. Perhaps you'll develop a new passion among the Iris.
