Well, if I order a hundred at $10. each that's $1000 plus lots of postage and lots of work. If I order 9 at $50, that's $450. and not so much work, plus I have a bunch of the newest ones. (see how one rationalizes this addiction! Rolling on the floor laughing )

That's one way to look at it. Rolling on the floor laughing

My wishlist is over 400 (and growing), so I'm too far gone to have any rational thought. Sighing!

Hilarious!

My wish list is so long (and if I had the space) I would do the 100 rhizomes for the 1K!

I think I am on the same page with Greg. I still haven't had enough iris old enough to see that they grow well for several years. Once I have the fine art of growing stellar iris year after year I won't balk at the more expensive ones. Tom, you have all that beautiful loess that makes for prime growing conditions . After everyone lands at your airport to steal your iris, I will come in with a cargo plane to steal that amazing dirt! Hilarious!

Tom, I was thinking along the same lines as you... If I cut down on the number I order, I can afford the new ones...

I'm going to look at Napa now Whistling
