Looking for yellow or purple irises for cost of postage or low cost. Thanks for considering.

Dr.Dawg, really love the first one...it's beautiful. Would love to get some rhizomes, if ever available.

Thanks for sharing photos Kousa and dr.dawg!

I will see what I can do, Elizbeth. I don't really have very many irises and what I do have are growing in a corner of my raised (vegetable) garden. You might have noticed that I have a small, tropical plant business. Have you ever grown Belamcanda chinensis, also called "Leopard Lily" and "Blackberry Lily"? It is not a lily at all but is in the iris family.

Oh, welcome to ATP.

OK. I will contact you sometime around first week of July. Would you also be interested in an old purple iris of intermediate height, with a grape scent? All the iris will be for postage.

Hi Ken,

Thank you so much for sharing the photos of Belamcanda chinensis, also called "Leopard Lily" and "Blackberry Lily". I have never grown this, it's very pretty. Being so new here, I hadn't noticed that you have a tropical plant business.

Take care,

Elizbeth
