Comment: wondering if anyone has irises bred by F.Knocke, my grandfather?
Reply: Hi Ginny, I don't have any of his irises; but, if you need a list of the ones registered, here is how to generate it. Just follow this search link and it will list the 20some TBs in the Iris Encyclopedia now. http://wiki.irises.org/bin/view/Main/WebSearch?search=knocke&scope=all&web=all As with any search, there are some other things found, some of which will be of interest. For example, his winning the Franklin Cook Cup with 'Hi Top'. Some of his irises will have photos, some not yet. The photos might provide clues where his irises can be found (or could be found at one time). For example, looking at the pictures for 'Hi Top' shows Bluebird Haven Iris Garden as the location for some of the pictures and Iris Paradise for another (Iris Paradise is in Germany). And Bluebird Haven does have 'Hi Top' in their online catalog. (This is the link for H's in their catalog: http://www.bluebirdhavenirisgarden.com/siteV2/tbCatalog/h.html ) I will email you this info as well since I'm not sure where the best place to put comments like yours is.
