Haha. I was at a discount store and saw Batik and Musician among other bulbs for $3.99 each. The label said "bulbs" and the planting instructions were for tulips! The rhizomes were quite desiccated. I bought one of each anyway, and I think they're surviving. There's just the barest hint of green shoots. Doubt they will bloom next year, but it would be amazing to see them grow.
Welcome to the thread of the iris virus! Hang around here long and you'll be planting many of them!
