my wife's brother-in-law was Bill (Wm) Simon, a hybridizer during the late 80's and early 90's. I am trying to find his iris plants for a memorial garden. What is the best way to put out a call to try to locate these isir (mostly TB's). He has 41 named iris registered in his name.

Post this question on the iris forum and also on the iris forum on cubits. I remember his name and am trying to think of the iris.

That link only goes to the general search page. Try typing Simon into the hybridizer box. You'll get 67 results. They should include all of his registered cultivars.

Mike, just in case you have a little trouble finding the right place to search by hybridizer, here is the link (I always have trouble finding these things myself!)
