When I saw a beautiful Iris pic here at ATP that was named 'Wildcat Madness', I knew that the hybridizer had to live in Kentucky. I've only lived in Kentucky since the summer of 1996, but it is truly Wildcat madness here in the state, because of the University of Kentucky Wildcats that are in Lexington.

The hybridizer John Van Hook, lives in Somerset, Kentucky. I don't grow any Irises at this time, but if I did, this would certainly have a spot in my garden.
