Rodney Barton's Brevicaulis Page

Rodney Barton's Brevicaulis Page previously was part of his North American Native Iris site, which is no longer active.  Rodney generously permitted a move of the Louisiana iris species pages to the Zydeco species section. Rodney lives and grows irises in Hickory Creek, TX, near Dallas.
