Hybridizers George, Roberta and Ben Shoop

Portland, Oregon, USA

George Shoop had a very small space where he did his work every year, but he did do some of the best work I've yet seen in person, or in catalogs. He was delayed by one year when he first started hybridizing, because he couldn't figure out why he wasn't getting anything by placing pollen on the beards. In his second year, he learned where on the iris to properly hybridize. He did alot of work on several different types of irises; his main area that he worked on was TB (Tall Bearded).

George Shoop received the Hybridizer Award in 1991.
