Over on the daylily forum, they have a thread for Daylilies WANTED by ATP members. The point of the thread is to help ATP people find daylilies that they want - daylilies which in some cases may no longer be in commerce.

Since there is an iris which I think I would like (largely because of the name), but for which I cannot find a commercial source, I thought I would start a similar thread here.

So... the iris that I want is 'Stormy Weather'. Does anyone have any for sale?

The current avatar image is that of a volunteer daylily seedling showing cristation.

Priwall appears to be available at Rainbow Iris Farm.
No luck on the others, but I only check the historics, 1986 and back.

They have them listed but for the past few years they have not been available. Confused last year it looked like they were available but when my order came they were not included with the notation that they were out. My order was in very early.

That happened to me the year before that too. I love the look of Hummingbird's Blessing but doubt I will ever find it.

This is Elephant's Foot Print, I had it from Woodland Irises some years back, but they are not in business any more. Loved it and lost it. I would love to get it back, but can't find it.
It's a little guy.

I tried to order Elephants Footprint from Newport Irises the year after they suffered all of their losses. I was told they would not sell ANY SDB's that year. Their inventory has never rebounded. If I ever find Elephants Footprint I will get one for both of us Tom...... or two. Smiling

Another sought after, but cannot find, iris I would like is TB Thunder Road. The name alone brings back memories of my misspent youth, souped up engines, curving mountain roads and traversing them fast on a moonlit night with no headlights on. No shine, just kids living the life.
