The President's Cup

Walther Cup

The President's Cup ..............related links Awards

The President's Cup is awarded annually during The American Iris Society's national meeting. Eligibility is restricted to introduced irises originated within the host region for that year's national meeting or originated by a hybridizer whose garden is included on the meeting's official convention tour, regardless of its location. Irises must have been seen growing and in bloom in the meeting's official tour gardens, but need not be official guest irises. Each registrant may vote for one variety, and The President's Cup is awarded to the iris with the largest number of votes. Irises out of region are eligible for the Franklin Cook Cup.
