The American Dykes Memorial Medal

Dichotoma This is one of the highest awards judged by the American Iris Society Judges. It is awarded by the British Iris Society in honor of William Rickatson Dykes to the best Iris developed by an American hybridizer. The candidates are chosen from the AIS Medal winners that have been bred by American (US & Canadian) Hybridizers. The Medal winners are the best irises in their class. So this is the best of the best. The British Iris Society also presents Dykes Medals to Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and previously France. Also see the 2015 American Dykes Medal candidates.
