Nebraska Hybridizers in World of Irises Post

The American Iris Society the World of Irises blog has frequent posts covering iris topics and always including great iris photos.  Jean Richter recently wrote “Space Age Iris of the Early 21st Century” which included two Nebraska hybridizers.  LeRoy Meininger was represented by ‘Beneath My Wings’ (2005) HM 2007, AM 2011.  Leonard and Kathy Jedlicka’s ‘Isadora Belle’ (2009) is the other Nebraska space ager shown.  (Both of these cultivar links are to the Iris Encyclopedia entries.)  One of the things I learned by checking the cultivars’ entries is that Jedlicka’s iris pedigree included one of Meininger’s seedlings.

Thank you to all our Region’s hybridizers for their contributions.
