Hy­brids ha­ve been pro­du­ced from cros­sing the arils with the mo­re com­mon bear­ded iri­ses. The­se are cal­led aril­breds (ab­bre­via­tion: AB), and are usual­ly ve­ry ea­sy to grow and still di­splay the spec­ta­cu­lar fea­tu­res of the arils. Mo­st aril­breds are tall and ha­ve lar­ge blooms. They usual­ly bloom ear­lier than the tall bear­ded iri­ses, with the stan­dard dwarf and the in­ter­me­dia­te bear­ded iri­ses. The Aril So­cie­ty In­ter­na­tio­nal fur­ther sub­di­vi­des the aril­breds in­to ni­ne ca­te­go­ries, ba­sed on the re­la­ti­ve con­tent of on­co­cy­clus, Re­ge­lia, and bear­ded an­ce­stry.
