The photo of BB 'Hi Buddy' is better than the one which I have. Ginny is a great photographer.

As to the cost, what I don't totally understand, is there must be as much "work" involved in the hybridization of an SDB, or IB, as in a TB.....but the "little guys" are always cheaper Confused I guess size DOES matter Shrug! .I have bought a 'couple" Median "new intros", but I just can't justify the cost on a TB. Many have said that the growers are usually VERY generous with bonus plants, when you buy a new intro....and I guess, depending on how you want to "figure" it, that brings the "price per iris" down. On the other hand, a person MAY not want iris that they didn't actually order....wrong "color scheme", already have it, whatever.

Arlyn - I have noticed the dwarf intros are cheaper than the TB's, but after they have been out awhile, they are often sold on sites for as much or more than the TB's. Go figure. Blinking
$50 a pop is rich for my blood. I need a few more years of seeing that the iris I already have are surviving before I risk getting an expensive new intro. I would be devastated to lose it.

All that being said, Winterberry has an awful lot of SDB's that I want. Oh my.

Name comes from the fact that it had 7 buds the first year of bloom. Unusual for a seedling. Blue violet pod parent, yellow pollen parent. thank you all for thinking of trying it. Not full of ruffles for those who like ruffles. In the new intros. It is about 24" tall.

Beautiful images! Anyone know them well enough to see if they would allow their photos to be added to our database along with a link back to their site?

Sue, email Ginny at gspoon@aol.com . She has given me permission before to use any of the photos she sends me of her garden shots here. I think she would love having her photos in our database.
