Hybridizer: Ernest Wilson

Cerrillos, New Mexico, USA

REGION XXIII: Ernest Wilson's interest in flowers extends back to his childhood and the wild flowers of the countryside. His special interest in irises began in 1956, first with the tall bearded, and then in 1958 he saw his first arils, and he reports he was lost. Since then he has grown most types of irises that are reasonably happy in the alkaline soil and water of Albuquerque, N. M. In 1960 he began hybridizing, working mainly with aril and tall bearded. At the end of March, 1969, he retired from a career of Personnel and Business Management, and has been so busy since he now feels in need of a vacation. Mr. Wilson hopes to visit each group in Region XXIII during 1970 in an attempt to increase interest and membership. Mr. Wilson has two additional hobbies-music and writing. He is an opera buff.
