Correction - I didn't take the photo of Organza. I got permission from Tempo Two to
use it, since it wasn't in the database.

Do I need to delete the picture of Organza? I hope not since it's such a georgeous iris.

Off the top of my head, this is limited to Mid-America. We get a wish list for each vendor right? Green Grin!
Bronze Heart

Die Laughing

Orange Obsession

It's not over

Rain in Spain

Breathtaking

It's a small world

Fashion Baby

Green Oasis

Elf Esteem

This includes relatively new ones $$, so I may have to wait until prices go down and pick other favorites.

It seems to be a very vigorous iris, Barb. I have it in a pot on my deck, and will soon transfer it to a new bed.
Don't delete it. Unless someone says to. Smiling

I have a feeling I'll have a lengthy Burseen list since Stout Gardens just got a huge stock of his irises to sell.

I'm also anticipating a few Keppel intros on top of Mood Ring which I already put on my list. I'm worried about Mid-America since I liked a lot of their intros this year, plus I want pretty much every SDB they have ever created. Sigh...

I get Burseens from all over. Stout's and The Shady Spot are two of 3 vendors that will start introducing his iris for him starting next year and both have large collections. I am blanking on the third vendor at the moment but know they are friends of Tom's. Superstition has a nice selection, Breezeway has a very affordable collection, Wild Iris Rows has some of the less easy to find like Sensationalizer and I Wuv Woses, and Blue J carries many of his older varieties.

Liz - do all the vendors just tell you what they are getting since you place such big orders? Blinking I had been told the whole story about the future introductions of Burseens but had to keep it a secret for months until the vendors had their final meetings with Tom Burseen and they divided the stock. I think I was told only because it appears that everyone knows my Burseen obsession. Hilarious!
