Hybridizer Jack Linse

Yakima, Washington, USA

Obituary Jack G. Linse, iris breeder and commercial grower (Easy Breeze Gardens), Yakima, Washington, died on March 8, at age 70. His catalog for 1962 listed 46 of his originations. Among these were such well-known varieties as CASCADIAN ( AM '57) and DREAMY ( HM '56). Most of Mr. Linse' s origina­tions, however, are arilbreds, which were his special hybridizing interest. In 1961, four of his arilbreds-BLUE MOTIFE, CARELESS LOVE, FRONT Row, and GOLDEN JOPPA-won Honorable Mention awards, and another, TROPHY, received the Clarence G. White Memorial Award, equivalent to the Award of Merit.
