We collect and try and preserve historic iris. We are looking for the Sass iris Maid of Astolat. We would be willing to trade any of our established iris or would gladly pay for a rhizome.

Thanks! Marie and Jack

Hi Marie and Jack,

They have Maid of Astolat growing at the Sass Memorial Garden near Omaha, and every year they dig rhizomes to sell. If they dig MoA and you would like me to, I'd be happy to grab one for you and send it. You might get a more convenient offer, but thought I'd mention it in case.

That's probably the only place you will find it. I've checked about everywhere I could think of, and it seems to be a scarce one....As is it's sister, Claribel....Arlyn

It’s okay to not know all the answers.
