Hello all; Can anyone tell me why there are years without Dykes Medal winners (like 1946, 1960, 1987, etc)?? I've searched the web and have been unable to find an answer. We have a garden with all of the listed winners, but was wondering why years were skipped. Was there no voting? Were there ties in those years?

Thanks so much,
Jack

Interesting question, hope someone has the answer.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

The voting must reach a certain threshold; say 75% (I do not know what it is though). If any iris does not make that threshold, then there is no winner.
