Hi All,
Just saw a link for a webpage that lists who is selling specific Tall Bearded iris - so if you're looking for one, say...Kachina Dancer, go to www.tbfinder.com and they list who has it for sale. Pretty neat!

I found CT Iris carries Stripe Butterfly but unfortunately it's not available.
The other one I looked up was Secret Affair. I'm thinking it was registered by Thomas Johnson in 2010 but has never been offered for sale.

Well, this should get things going in the 2017 Orders thread for sure! Big Grin
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

@grannysgarden as i am not a native english speaker - could you explain "sort out the dwarfs for me" please? Have you found wrong plants, some dwarfs on tbfinder? Having 7000+ plants to keep up to date sometimes results in errors...

Thank you for your answer.

So sorry Irisdude! No errors on TB Finder.

What I meant is that someone should make a separate iris finder for the dwarfs. I spend much time looking at sites, emailing growers as well as the hybridizers looking for a hard to find dwarf. Sorry I was not more clear in my meaning. Smiling
