Hybridizer Wilma Vallette (1899-1980)

Declo, Idaho, USA

Born February 4, 1899 --- Died October 19, 1980


Wilma Vallette was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal of the American Iris Society for her considerable services. The roots of the Round Robin program are found in her early Robin letters, and these letters later made up the basis for her book, "Iris Culture and Hybridizing for Everyone," a book that proved so popular it has been sold out long since. The many services she has rendered to irises and the American Iris Society over a long span of years have earned for her this honor of the Distinguished Service Medal.
