I would like to add new images in the database of new and historical iris? How do I as a member get this done? i would also like to buy plants that others might have and be willing to sell to me. how would I go about purchasing plants that someone has for sale?

Both of these photos are of the historical TB Iris known as Bayberry Candle. Very hard to find these days. Would love to find someone who has rhizomes they are willing to sale.

On the left hand side of the page is a link to the database. Go there and type in the name of the plant you want to add. When you find the plant in the database scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the upload photo link listed under Adding Actions.
Here is the page for Bayberry Candle. Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Bayberry Candle')

To buy or trade you can post a request in the plant and seed trade forum.

1. Go to the 'Plant database'
2. enter the name of your plant in the search box
(I found your plant here: Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Bayberry Candle'))
3. Scroll down to 'adding actions' and click on 'upload a photo'. it will go into a queue to be app[roved by admins.

For purchases it's best to go to the 'classified and group buys' forum and post your request there.

Good luck! Thumbs up

You might want to become active on the iris forum. Once you become acquainted you will find lots of irises being traded and or sold.
