The Franklin Cook Cup
The Franklin Cook Cup ..............related links: Awards
The Franklin Cook Memorial Cup is awarded annually during The American Iris Society's national meeting. All introduced irises seen growing and in bloom in the official tour gardens of the meeting are eligible for the Cook Memorial Cup, except irises originated within the host region for that year's national meeting or originated by a hybridizer whose garden is included on the official garden tour, regardless of its location. Irises considered need not be an official "Guest" iris. Each registrant may vote for only one variety and the Franklin Cook Memorial Cup is awarded to the iris receiving the greatest number of votes from the registered convention attendees.
Host region irises are eligible for the President's Cup.
