Hi Dave,

Is there a way to see the most owned (by users of this site) irises in the database ? That would be helpful to know the most popular ones.

Thank you.

I don't know the answer to that but in May of last year Dave ran this article listing the 25 most popular Irises on this site.

Thank you Dave for sending me this information.

"For dynamic access, simply searching for "Iris" will return the results in the order of how many users have the plant."

As there is 68 returned pages (today), we know now that the ATP members grow 1360 cultivars (68x20) out of the 64,904 iris cv available in the database. That's 2% of the total ! We got to improve that, Guys ! ;-)

I agree

Cool! I just changed it to Agastache, Salvia, Narcissus, Tulipa, Lavandula, etc.... Love it!

Welcome to the Agastache and Salvias Forum!
