Biological Success of Cultivars

An organism can be defined as "Biologically Successful" if it passes on its genes to future generations.

Cultivars show various degrees of biological success. It can be measured by the number of descendants. Relative success can be seen by comparing the number of registered offspring to other cultivars in the same generation.

The most successful cultivars make up the foundation of the current gene pool. They have been named "Foundation Irises"

Here is a list of years for which success has been evaluated
