In Love with Japanese Irises
A Midwest iris
Japanese irises are so beautiful that John and Bob have a hard time picking their favorites. But for a truly Midwestern selection, consider the purple 'Kalamazoo' (in foreground in the photo at left). Hybridized by a Michigan man, Art Hazzard, it was introduced by John and Bob in 1996 and won the Payne Medal, a top award from the Society for Japanese Irises.
