Do you know any nurseries that have a great variety of Bearded Iris??? And do they have online purchases??? I'm thinking Schreiner's, has a large variety but I'm not so sure.
A lot of places are closed for the year now, but still have their catalogs up.
I believe Flyingpbar and C & T are still open. Or they were. Some, like Eagle Ridge, have closed up the storefront entirely. (EDIT: WALKINGPBAR not flying, lol) https://www.walking-p-bar.com/...
Dancing Dragon has a big catalog, but it's not the easiest to use.
Winterberry has some great irises, and pretty clear labelling and nice photos. But their website is also not my favorite. I have to scroll up and down to find photos and heights and bloom timing, etc.
I ordered quite a bit from MidAmerica this year. The new website is much improved and their search functionality, like Schreiner's, is excellent. Being able to filter a search by keyword is really helpful when they have a big selection. And especially, for people like me, being able to filter out early blooming irises is really helpful, because we always have nasty cold snaps and freezes after an initial thaw.
Cayeux ships to the US, fyi. I like their website's storefront as well.
Sutton and Stout and Iris Sisters and a lot of hybridizers/gardens have their catalogs online or you can view all their stock. They all have pretty good online storefronts, in my opinion.
OH and PS:
I know that some reputable nurseries also sell Siberians and some DBs. Bluestone Perennials does. They have a few DBs in stock, and some Sibbies as well. They have a 100% guarantee on their plants. I once got some salvia that was just crawling with slugs, and they replaced them all immediately. I trust them, I got all my catmint and veronica from them. but if it's a place you trust, with a guarantee on it, you might try them out.
