Hybridizer: Mollie Barrett Tallant (1884-1971)

Edmond, Oklahoma, USA

From The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 201(April 1971): Mrs. Mollie Tallant, a well-known and much beloved irisarian, of Edmond, Okla., passed away January 6, 1971, at the age of 86. In 1925 she and some neighbors formed the Edmond Iris Club, and she had served the club in every capacity. Her interest in hybridizing began about the time she joined AIS, some fifteen years ago. She was very critical of her own efforts, and introduced only two: SUNLIT LACE, which won an HM in '63, and JUANITA T, which won an HM in '70. A very dark beauty which won an EC in '70, as yet unnamed, probably will be introduced in '72. Her appreciation of irises will live on in those who came to love her and grow them because of her influence. —Leah Ralls
