Dana Borglum & The Randolh Perry Medal

The Randolph-Perry Medal is awarded annually by the American Iris Society for the best Species X Iris hybrid. Species X is a cross between two species. In this case a cross that was previously thought impossible... but the bees did it on Dana Borglum's Iris Farm.

'Ally Oops' (Borglum, Registered 2000) SPEC-X, height 18" (46 cm), blooms Early Midseason. Standards and style arms light blue; Falls yellow, blue veining; foliage tall, ribbed center. Parentage unknown --- presumed siberian X Iris pseudacorus . Borglum 2002. Randolph-Perry Medal, 2010.

Iris pseudacorus is commonly known as a "flag."

And the winner for 2010 brought his medal to the GRIS (Greater Rochester Iris Society) meeting last Thursday.
