The Iridaceae contains many hundreds of attractive species that have been overlooked for horticultural development. The incredible variation in flower and leaf shape, size and colour suggest this little-tapped resource could offer great opportunities for developing new commercial ornamental products. Micropropagation has increasingly become a valuable tool assisting breeders to release new species and cultivars into the market more rapidly. Here we review the progress made in Iridaceae… CONTINUE READING
