Hybridizer Arthur John Bliss (1860-1931)

Tavistock, Devon, England

Amateur, scientific breeder of Iris, Gladioli and Daffodils. Famous as the raiser of 'Dominion' and the 'Dominion' race of Irises. Perhaps we owe more to him than any other breeder of Irises, being one of the first to keep strict records and his "loyalty to the vision of perfection" Among his greatest productions are 'Bruno', 'Mrs. Valerie West', 'Romola', 'Cardinal', 'Grace Sturtevant', 'Carfax', 'Susan Bliss', and 'Duke Of Bedford'. For more information about historic Irises see The Historirc Iris Society.
