Hello and welcome to my site. What was started by my wife as a family photo and sports photography site has become dominated by my Bearded Iris Hybrids. My name is Dan Holt and I've been growing Bearded Iris for about 10 years. In 2002, I decided to make a few crosses... I was hooked! A few of my hybrids are graciously being grown by Denise Stewart of Snowpeak Iris and Daylilies in Lebanon Oregon. If they prove themselves, and I choose to name and register them, they will be introduced by Snowpeak... Thank you, Denise! Several others are being grown for the first time outside of my Texas home in the display gardens at Madison, Wisconsin for the 2010 American Iris Society Convention. If you are new to hybridizing and would like to learn the basics, just scroll down to the photo gallery titled "Iris Hybridizing" I hope you find it helpful. As the bloom season continues, and time permits, I'll be adding photos of new first time bloomers, so watch for the updates! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at, danoholt@yahoo.com.

My grandaughter is the cutie of the family, so all you see of me is the back of my balding head... Dan
