Hybridizer Lloyd Zurbrigg

Durham, North Carolina, USA

Zurbrigg’s(1925-2005) interest in iris began with his association with Rev. Alex. Edmison in Listowel, Ontario, Canada. In 1953 he began to register and introduce iris from other irisarians, namely Mrs. Harry (Lois) Bickle, Rev. A. K. Edmison, William Miles, and Oliver A. Kummer, although he had made his own crosses as early as 1947. (CIS-N 7-67) Between 1956 and 1958 he was Canadian AIS RVP for Region 16. Lloyd moved to the USA in the fall of 1958, first to Indiana, and then to Radford College, Virginia as a Professor of Music. He is known for his work producing rebloomers, (remontants) especially for the shorter growing seasons of Ontario. His best known reblooming iris are 'Immortaliy', 'English Cottage' and 'Clarence'. Lloyd was one of the founding members of the Reblooming Iris Society and was its first president from 1967-1970, and President again in 1977 to 1981. (Researched by Don McQueen)

Lloyd Zurbrigg was honored with the American Iris Society Hybridizer Award in 1992.
