I have an overabundance of bearded iris which I'm moving out of the garden. I would estimate close to 100 or more. These are basically all the same colors, ie dark purple to light purple, medium height to tall. They are mixed in together so I have no way of know which will be which. I hoping to bring in different colors so these have to go. If your interested in taking some, send me a tree mail. Shipping will be actual cost to ship from my location to yours.

Here are some pics of the blooms last year. I have many more I need to divide but since I'm redoing 2 beds in the next couple of weeks, I need to dig these out pronto or toss on the compost pile. They are starting to send up flower stalks but I have to bite the bullet and get them out. They will be dug, cleaned of as much dirt as I can, trim the foliage and packed for shipping. I won't trim the roots and leave that for you to do as well as the final cleaning.

It would be the darker purples shown in the pic

The weather looks good for this coming weekend and I can finally get these out of the garden. If you sent me an email, please know that I'll be in touch on Sunday via Tree Mail to finalize the quantity and ship. Thanks to all who responded and will give these a new home.

Julia, do you still have some of the darker iris available? I have some peachy apricot color bearded iris to trade.

Hi all:
I've halted digging for now and will resume again in late July/early August. I still have alot to divide but spending my time with my
other garden duties. I'm sure you all know what that is like. If your interested, just send me a tree mail with your information.

I recently have encountered an issue with a person on the ATP forum who has failed to pay me for the postage
I prepaid for them when I shipped the iris back in early May. Yes, the person received them and even though I've
followed up, and they said they forgot or it was in the mail, still no check as of today. There are alot of good people who I've sent
the iris to who paid me back for the postage but unfortunately I've encountered a bad apple. So going forward all monies need to be prepaid
up front for the postage. I don't make any money on this. The postage is exactly what it costs to ship.

And to the person who still owes me, I'm still waiting for my check.

Julia,

I am so sorry that someone on this forum would do that to you. If they had to buy the plants, and pay for the shipping, it would have cost them so much more.

As a moderator here, I have always hoped we could get some trading, and yes, freebies going, but my gosh, something like this really sets that back.

Please, whoever owes Julia postage, please pay her. Let's not start out on the wrong foot with trading and freebies here.
