Hybridizer Mrs. Lena Freudenburg (1894-1970)

Battle Creek, Nebraska, USA

From The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 202(July 1971): Mrs. Lena Freudenburg, ardent iris lover and hybridizer for nearly thirty years, departed this life October 6, 1970, following a lingering illness. She began hybridizing in 1942, and introduced forty-one irises. The first six introductions were named for her grandchildren. What started as a hobby in 1942 mushroomed into a thriving little business-the Freudenburg Iris Garden. She grew between 1500 and 2000 named varieties, always including the latest iris introductions from all over the nation. She has left a heritage of beautiful irises, her own introductions, which are treasured by family and friends. She is survived by her husband, Walter, a son Arland, a daughter, Adelaide (Mrs. Alvin Scheve), six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
