Index to General Iris Information Topics

Below is a conventional INDEX. It is a list of links to definitions and topic areas. Click on a word for more information. Individual cultivars and species are found by a search of all webs in Main Menu. Note topics that say on a website will take you out of the Encyclopedia. As with everything in the Iris Encyclopedia (wiki) this is constantly under construction and improvement. To add topics go to the end of this list, you will also find a listing of topic pages names (their wiki words)
