@crowrita1 I am sure I will! I need all the help on Iris's I can get, lol. Figure it was cheap enough for a years membership. I just recently joined IDIS (Indiana Daylily - Iris Society). I figured more Iris info would only help!!

Welcome Catherine. You will find all kinds of help there as well as here. The sale is mostly historics of course, but I believe there is one modern and two NOIDs on the list. In my thinking, and my age, 30 years old is not very historic!

Haha Dave! I was thinking the same thing..

I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about 'Joan Crawford', 'Sing Again' or 'Cuba Libre'.. Could not find any pictures of them.

Joan Crawford is a TB, silvery blue, white tip beard. No pix found. It is in the HIPS sale! Not found in many gardens, no commercial sources apparently.
Cuba Libre is a TB, pic is at http://wiki.irises.org/bin/view/TbAthruE/TbCubaLibre?id=1&fi...
Sing Again is an IB, pic is at http://www.wiki.irises.org/bin/view/Ib/IbSingAgain?id=1&file...

Nice looking ones.

Oh thanks Dave. I forget that Google searches don't always show images from the AIS site. Those three were all on the HIPS list.

Bonnie-Sorry to say that "Dear Dollie" is a missing lady or at least she is camera shy!

Sherry-most times the AIS wiki does show up in searches, but often not near the top of the list. Often females named "Iris" show up to confuse things as well.

Thanks for looking Dave. I had a rhizome given to me last year but it did not bloom this year. I need to move it and see if I can make it bloom and then compare it to its description in AIS wiki........another iris adventure.

Sing Again has great form for the time period--might think about it if I have space.
