I have stumble onto a new (to me) small time hybridizer working in Kentucky. John has 9 introductions in the database and 3 new ones for 2015! Only two of his current 9 have pictures. I have sent him a couple of emails and hope to have a go ahead to post his 2015 introductions and maybe his other work if he can send me pictures.

Fingers crossed!

I just checked and he posts pics on his facebook page of his seedlings, some great work he's doing! You may want to try sending him a message there too.

I couldn't find it on Facebook. Found a lot of John Van Hook's, but none had irises.

OK, that one got me to the Facebook page, Rob, but I didn't see any irises. The link Leslie had showed the bright blue ruffly Emma Cook iris, but are there others?

Oh yes! The Emma Cook like iris is called "Wildcat Madness". I am just waiting for the plant database folks to put it in the system, then I can add pictures as John gave his ok to use his pictures.

This one is the most interesting one in my opinion in that the foliage is variegated; and it stands out!

I really like his 2015's. All very different from each other, and quite lovely.
