|I wonder if you contacted HIPS....Historic Iris Preservation Society if they might guide you to a source. I am not a member but know there are many people who love the historics.

|Superstition Gardens might have it. Mind you the order must be in their hands this week.|

|Hi, I believe Mathews Iris Gardens, in Mo. has it on their list. Arlyn|

|Hi, Again! Just looked at Winterberry's Catalog, they have it also! Other places to check are Bluebird Haven, and Blue J iris, all good sources for historics. By the way, I've been hunting for Buechley Giant. It seems no place I've checked has it. Any one here know a source? Or grow it, and wish to sell a start?...Arlyn|

|Thank you, but neither one has a website!|

|Hi,! Bluebird Haven has it listed on their site. But watever you do, send for a list from Mathews,and be sure to get a catalog from winterberry, both are excellent sources for both modern and historics. Winterberry has a tremendous selection of rebloomers and medians. Check them out!...Arlyn|

|Superstition isn't showing it this year. In my opinion Superstition is the very best place to get historics from. |
I have Louvois and it's a gorgeous iris, but a slow grower. I also have Petite Louvois, which does look just like a miniature of Louvois.

|Thank you; guess I will have all winter to look for it!|

|Petite Louvois the miniature tall bearded iris does very well in our area.|

|Susan, I know that Superstition has it, they probably just aren't putting it in their catalogue this year. |
Just wanted to show you part of the order i just got from Superstition. Always a great place to buy from. I got 40 historics.

|Wonderful, Louise, and thank you for offering. I have it, but may I ask that if someone contacts you for a trade, you run it by Dee or myself, as we've had some scammers on this site already. You can send us a personal tmail. Pretty soon you will get to know who the 'regular' good people (most) are on here. Thanks. |
But, don't let that stop you from offering, we have a really varied group of people here, with varied irises, and it would be great to get some trades going.

|Next year I will be offering a limited supply of historics.|
Thank you Polly for telling her about the list we have going on scammers
Nov 16, 2012 12:30 PM CST
|When do you publish the list for 2013, Dee?...Arlyn|
Nov 16, 2012 2:23 PM CST
|What damage do the scammers do? I would like to know |
what to look for if I have been scammed.
Nov 16, 2012 2:49 PM CST
|Main problem seems to be ...You send the iris, and they never send the postage !...Seems as how some people can't help but ruin a good thing !....Arlyn|

Thanks for the information. I had quite a bit of traffic lately
with the mailing - some sent cash, some money orders and
some less than $2 (that I'm waiting for).

|Louise since you are new, you might tell the people that want for postage, that you will mail as soon as you receive the money. 95% of the people here are super and honest as you can get, but then you get a few bad apples, that get them for free with either a sob story or never send money for shipping, then either landscape all their property for nothing or turn around and sell on Ebay for money. It is truly a shame, but if you have some that have not sent money PLEASE let me know or Polly so we can watch in the future.|

|Thanks for the information. Most of my deals have been handled |
in Tmail because of revealing mailing addresses, mine and theirs.
That's where I've been explaining that I send a package after I receive
their postage payment. Before frost, I always have many plants or
cuttings that I need to find a home for as I prepare for winter.
Many of my plants go all the way back to DG - that was before the
postage rates kept going up and up and up. And now, they are
saying the post office is in serious default. What next?????
