Hybridizing with Lynda
Lynda Miller will be our speaker on Tuesday, June 5 at 6:30pm.
Over 10 years ago Millers (2006 Roger, 2007 Lynda and Nathan) left
the long, cold, and burrowing winters of Indiana to pursue the dream
of living in plant heaven, Oregon. Lynda is an iris hybridizer and works
with all sizes of bearded iris. She specializes in Miniature Tall
Bearded and Tall Bearded Iris. True Miniature Dwarf Bearded iris
are also a favorite project. The iris garden is limited to nearly an
acre with her TB seedlings being forced off-site for their maiden
bloom. Space limits the collection to approximately 600 registered
varieties and 300+ selected seedlings in the valuation process. The
iris are grown in long rows to allow for cultivation and are all dug
each year with only 2 or 3 rhizomes per variety retained.
Currently nearly all dwarf and median seedlings make their first
appearance in the home garden. Lynda's 2018 introductions are
available at Mid-America Gardens.
Please join us as she shares about current developments in iris hybridizing.
Please note that Lynda will also be giving one hour of judge's training on tall bearded iris starting at 4:30pm to which all are invited
