Hybridizer Geddes Douglas --(1902-1993)

Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Geddes Douglas is one of the namesakes for the Cook-Douglas Medal, the highest award given by The American Iris Society strictly to Standard Dwarf Bearded Irises. He was also honored by the American Iris Society with the Hybridizer Award in 1949.

NOTE: Douglas registered a number of Irises in the mid 1950's when the classification system for Irises was changing. The new present system classified Irises by height first then bloom season.
