There are some 2017 Grosvenors that are truly amazing - I really want one called 'Final Destination' - crazy colours, very different. 'Anytime Now' is also captivating, but has a not great bud count, I believe.
I have NO idea how to obtain them, but I've sent off an email... Crossing Fingers!

An Italian hybridiser, Massimiliano Grassi, has some really beautiful irises that I'm trying to track down, too.

Out of all the vendors I ordered from this year, Suttons was far and away the best. High quality, freshness, size and very generous bonuses. Two of the bonuses were 2016 intros. Being so short of available space, next year is quality, not quantity. So I am sure Suttons Intros will be on my very short list. And NEXT year I'm sticking to my list. Whistling

I think Rockytop is going to introduce a few more Piatek irises next year. I'm most disappointed about not having easier access in the US to those. I also like Slosiar irises but he does not ship outside of Europe at all.

If Rainbow Ridge don't sell internationally, you can maybe ask Tempo Two to acquire it for you, and send it to you with your Tempo Two order.

Can we remind you that you said this, John? Or should we happily forget it? I KNOW I'll forget my resolutions!

I agree! The rhizomes I received were fantastic and the bonuses were also great. I got 2 2016 intros plus some other nice ones including Glacier Melt that I had been wanting!

I ordered late from Sutton this year. This was the first time I've ordered from Sutton. They allow you to choose your own bonus(es). Some very nice introductions were already sold out. I'll be ordering early in 2018.

Just buy 3 or 4 intros and you'll probably get a bunch for free..what I did

Rob, I have near 8 increases on Western Edge, if it lives your welcome to a piece. Please note it though, but I'll probably remember.

Good idea, Robin. I'll wait to see what response I get from Rainbow Ridge to my email.
