Yes, I hybridized bearded iris decades ago before my trees grew up and  
produced so much shade that they don't flower anymore.

A book that is very interesting is a compilation of iris breeding  
information, theorization and experiments, gathered from round-robin  
letters.  It is mostly, but not entirely, about bearded iris.

Wilma Vallette's Iris Culture and Hybridizing for Everyone published  
in 1962.  It is inspiring to see how a group of enthusiastic amateurs  
could amass so much information.
