National Collection – ‘Tall Bearded Iris Raised by Bryan Dodsworth’
It is appropriate that Bryan Dodsworth’s achievement as a hybridiser of British Tall Bearded Irises is now recognised for posterity with the status of a ‘National Collection’ . This is evidence of both the quality and importance of his irises.
Plant Heritage approved the application in 2016. This includes 31 varieties and our plan is to increase this slowly as we evaluate the large collection of unnamed seedlings. This process is expected to take several years to complete.
