2012: Richard Cayeux proudly received the FOSTER MEMORIAL PLAQUE from the British Iris Society. This plaque is reserved as a special personal award to those who contribute to the advance of the genus Iris.
2014: Our valued variety 'MAGNETISME' received an A.G.C. (award) from the British Iris Society which confirms our impression that it is the archetype of an excellent modern iris in all respects. When presented, it also was highly praised at the exhibit Journées des Plantes de Courson 2014.
