Hybridizing irises

July 1984
Yankee;Jul84, Vol. 48 Issue 7, p84
Beatrice Warburton, 79, of Westboro, Mass., has christened 75 varieties of iris. This is some feat when already some 70,000 names have already been used for irises. Her latest creation, orange and white, is dubbed `George Henry' after her cat. Her aesthetic vision has won her awards in the U.S., Italy, France and elsewhere.
