In 2015 Plant Heritage grant National Collection Status for our Bearded Irises. The name of the Collection is ‘Tall Bearded Irises raised by Bryan Dodsworth’.
National recognition of this kind will help in two ways. Firstly, to raise the profile of Bryan Dodsworth as as the preeminent twentieth century British Iris Hybridiser. Secondly, to bring these outstanding British Bearded Irises to the attention of the gardening world.
We are most grateful to several national collection holders of irises who have provided support and encouragement. This is much appreciated.
