Finally! They're now on the website, but for some reason I had to go back and forth between pages 1 and 2 to see them all. There are a couple that I really like. And I do love their rebloomers!

I can't get their other categories to open. It looks like they have not finished loading the catalog.
Has everyone gone up to $55 for new intros? Whew.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Cindi some new ones are $60. SDB 'Reddy Freddy' is appealing.

Schreiner's has gone up to $60 minimum for the new intros with a maximum of $65, but Sutton's is the only other one I know of who set their TB prices at $55 this year. This year Mid-America is holding the prices of all their new intros at $50, whereas in previous years they would have one or two at $60. And Superstition holds the prices of their new intros at $50. With the exception of Rockytop and a couple of others, I think they're all up to a minimum of $50 for TB's now. So far Rockytop is holding its intro prices at $45, and maybe Blue J and Stout Gardens have lower prices on their intros too.

Keith Keppel and Joe Ghio charge mostly $50 for their new intro's, with a couple at $60. And Napa Country is now up to $50 for their new intros, but they have intro specials where you can purchase any three for $115 or all of their new intros for another discount price, which is quite a bargain! Mid-America also has a discount program for new intros, and if you purchase any six you pay $37.50 per cultivar on the TB's. And Keith Keppel and Joe Ghio also usually have specials where you can purchase three for a discount price.

Of course, this is just the prices of the iris gardens I search through on the internet, and I am sure there are many others that I haven't looked at.

Sutton's is always really late with updating their catalog on their website, but I understand that they were to have mailed out their catalogs by now. If anyone not presently on their mailing list is interested in a catalog, you can contact them through their website to request one.

Those prices for new intros are a bargain compaired to the prices of daylily new intros. I had daylilies first and when I started in Iris I thought the new intros were bargains compaired to daylilies. Shrug! Blinking

I think $375.00, not that I bought anything quite that expensive. But if a new daylily intro were $50-$75 that would be a real good deal!

Yeah, I really like TIME BANDIT and RUBY MOON. But I may not place an order this year... I really have space problems now, especially with all my daylilies -- I now have more daylilies than irises!

I'm just starting to explore the new daylilies, LOL. Or should I say newer daylilies, no $375 daylilies for me.

Not for me either! But if you found that $375 daylily somewhere else for half that price and you really really wanted it, would you go for it?
