I just got a message from HIPS. Of the 40 rhizomes I ended up ordering, 24 are sold out. They gave me the option of a refund or substitution. I am going with the refund and now am looking for a vendor. I have looked at Superstition but really don't like their Facebook format. Do they have a catalog.
Are there other great historic vendors out there?

yes, they have a paper catalog. Bluebird haven a Lot of historics. Snow Peak has quite a few, as does Blue J. There are several others, and if you check the "commercial sources" section on the HIPS site, most are listed there.....Arlyn

I looked at Bluebird Haven, I will go back there. I just need to be a little more organized first because of their format.
I don't know why I keep forgetting about HIPS commercial sources section (except part of those vendors are outdated) but will look at that list again too.
I have an order pending with Snowpeak, just waiting for it to arrive.
Thanks Arlyn

Superstition has a catalog, but the photos are on facebook. the old format was sold to people who would make customer pay, so they switched. They send excellent plants.

Oh, ok. The whole facebook thing kinda confused me. I will see about getting a catalog then, thanks Lucy.

We'll be lucky if they don't put a
"Bloom Tax" on ! The Rascals !! Seriously ,though, Mary, at BlueBird Haven, is a great person to deal with, and has a TON of iris to choose from. You will not be disappointed! If you haven't already, send for a list from Matthews Iris Garden( it's all snail-mail ,there), and be sure to ask about what you want, as he lists only a fraction of what he has. next year, hopefully, I'll have mine on a spreadsheet so you can see what I have, and we'll do some more trading.....Arlyn
