Tom Johnson just wrote me back and said they discontinued growing this cultivar. If anyone might have this little gem growing in their garden and would be willing to trade or sell a rhizome I would be interested in contacting you. Thanks. Richard

Hi Richard. I don't grow the little SDB Lemon Twist. I think Mid America did list it at one time. Check their web site. Let us know if you find it. I will make a note to keep an eye out for it. Good luck.

I don't have it, but I will keep an eye out for it as well. Hope you can find and add it to your garden!

A couple of other blue bearded pale yellow dwarves that are available include Sutton's 'Bright Blue Eyes' $4 and Winterberry's 'Giggler' $4 http://www.winterberryirises.c... with rebloom Zone 6. I don't have any of these though, sorry.

You might want to check with Damon Gardens if they still have it. (They are members of this forum too).

Super late to this thread... thanks UnderTheSun for referring us.

We do have Lemon Twist in stock if you are still looking! It's $8 plus $8 s&h on our website.

Willing to accept an offer if you want to send me a tree mail. :)

Thanks Rob. When I found out Damon hasn't begun digging up their orders I went ahead and ordered a couple to add to our collection. The obsession is just getting fed more.........

BTW, a note to Damon Gardens:
Since I ordered the iris from you, perhaps you could send Rob an extra bonus Iris on his next order as 'commission' for his referral? Smiling
