I have a number of seedlings I would like to register. I want to give them as unique gifts to several friends, registering them in their names. What is the procedure and cost to register an iris? How do I go about doing that? I want to see if it is practical enough or a pipe dream.

Go here and read all about it.
If you are giving away iris that you are registering you MUST advertize them for sale to introduce them. You do not have to sale any but you must put them up for sale (i.e. limited quantities) Howard shocky did that for several of his including 'Purple Sequin'. By not introducing them they remain seedlings to the iris world even though they are registered.

Thank you, Anita,

I think that covers it nicely. It appears to be amazingly simple. Could that be?? In a world of bureaucracy where nothing ever seems straight forward? I like it!!

look on the checklist to see if the name or one close to it has not been intro'd

Give example
I See You This is too close and can not be used
I Seek You, Bianco registered

Give second chose as that always helps

Actually it is that easy
If there is a question Anne Lowe will usually e-mail you for more info so make sure you put an e-mail address on application

If named exactly after a friend, you need their permission, i.e. 'Mary Smith' . Love Mary Smith you may get away without it.

Lucy,

That answers my last nagging question. I would just need their permission to use just their name or I could use a phrase that they and I would totally understand. That is wonderful!!

Thanks to all of you, this looks do-able!

This is a hoot!! One of my co-workers that we call Linda Lou came to my desk this a.m. I got to show her the iris Linda Lou that was posted for the database, and I got to see how much she enjoyed seeing her name on a registered iris. That is just too much of a coincidence. She thoroughly enjoyed it if her eyes and smile are to be trusted :)

The down side. This makes waiting for Spring just a little harder. I can't wait to see the seedlings this year. Just yesterday before I decided all this I was nonchalant about them. They are pretty, just not offering new looks. Now, they may serve another very special purpose-gifts!

How would you plan on advertising them for sale, though, Katherine? That's where a lot of amateur hybridizers run into a snafu, they can't get them advertised for sale.

As I understood the information, I would not have to introduce them. They would remain seedlings to the iris world. The friends that would receive them as gifts know nothing of purchasing irises from growers.

I will look at what they consider advertising. What forms of advertising do they truly require?

Where there is a will there is a way...

I am all fired up about doing crosses this year. Last year I didn't have any succeed. I even had what looked like around 50 bee pods, but they were all sterile. I will be back at it this year full force.
