We'd love to get to know you better. Take a moment to say hi to the community in the comments.
Hi, I'm Suzanne Butler of Chillicothe, Texas (pop.700) zone 7 in NW Texas along the Okla. border. Upon retirement, my husband and I moved here (his hometown) from Corpus Christi (my hometown-zone 9) on the SE coast of Texas in 1999. There are very different growing conditions here. I was introduced to irises at that time and became a devotee. I have always loved older things and I eventually found the Historic Iris Preservation Society. I became active in that organization and a local iris club. I have started Breeders Collection of two local hybridizers: Z. G. Benson and L. E. Brooks.
