....to start thinking about dividing your irises.

I'm going to add ONE more post to this thread, where I am going to keep a current tally of what I am going to divide, and how many divisions I think I can give away, and also who gets them. This will help ME be accountable for getting the job done, provide some pushback against DH's house triaging mania ("...but I've got to divide these irises because people are expecting them from me!" Whistling Hilarious! ), and (long shot there Hilarious! ) maybe one of you might see something you actually might want.

Rhizome size will be whatever it is, which might be small. Anything I send should grow for you, although it may not bloom next year.

I will update my next post as I if/when/as I add plants to be divided, or when I finish.

If you want to contact me, please do so via Tree-Mail.

If you want to play along and join in with accountability/accounting/rhizome offers, you may add ONE post to this thread, which you will edit/update as needed. People wanting your divisions should contact you directly via Tree-Mail, so as to keep this thread focused SOLELY on what is available from members' gardens.

Thanks for your cooperation!

POLY'S 2019 DIVISION LIST

Currently...

DOUBLE AGENT..... 1-2 available at least, you will get bigger pieces (pot is getting crowded);


HIDDEN SURPRISE............0 available; 1 goes to @creativeclover, most of the rest go to @evelyninthegarden to go to the historic iris lady


IDA RED..............................2-3 available; older form, burgundy color, reblooms sometimes; grown in large pot so should be decent size


METRO BLUE.....................1-2 more available; registered rebloomer; grown in large pot so should be decent size; 1 to @Deebie;


NORDICA...........................2-3 available; I have to rogue out the remaining NORDICA from my PEPPERMINT CREAM patch, so here's your chance


SECOND FIDDLE..............2-3 available, at a guess; 1 to @Deebie; Zone 9 rebloomer suposedly; I haven't seen it do so, but it has had a hard life here! I have to dig these out of my Hell Strip but I will only give away the biggest 2-3


THAT'S ALL FOLKS...........currently 0 available (until I divide it and see what's what); 1 to @UndyingLight, @evelyninthegarden, @Deebie; size unknown but probably smaller rhizomes (I know I have to divide it but I haven't looked at it for a while)
