Do any of you have a bit of this Iris to share? Shirley was my mother's name and she would have loved the color. I can pay postage or share something I have in return.

Thanks in advance.

I can't help you Celia -- sorry. I only have the one Louisiana. Sad

Celia - If I had it, I'd send you some, but I don't.

There are Shirley tulips but you probably have them already. There's also a Shirley Temple peony. I bought it at Lowe's last year but don't know if it survived.
Good luck finding the LA.

I would send some if I had it but I have not even heard of that one. Good luck. Part of the fun is in the quest.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

I found it at a supplier so I may break down and just buy it. $6 is not much. My niece always called her Grandma Haley or Aunt Shirley so this is for her. Smiling

I don't have that one, but $6 is a very good price (!!), and then you know for sure you will have it. Smiling

Are you going through Louisiana Iris Farms, LLC? I have used their photo gallery/AIS Register to look up different LA's. I know they carry Aunt Shirley (and tons of other beauties....)

I forgot to add that $15 was a bit steep for shipping for just one, so I got her 2 others. It a couple years, I will get some back from her. Smiling

Well, you didn't want the one to be lonely did you? Hilarious! Mine took a year to settle, then bloomed the second year, and they really increase after that. She will have plenty to share in no time!
