I've had this iris on my want list for a couple of years:
I've looked on the Tbfinder.com and there is no listing for this iris. Sad
Do any of you know who sells this Iris in the U.S.? If anyone has one, I would love to do an iris trade with you or buy a rhizome from you. I tip my hat to you.

Charlotte mentioned that she was looking for one too in the top ten picks thread and this was my reply to her:

Sirocco Mist is tall and makes a beautiful clump. The flowers fade a bit after a couple of days.

I did a quick google and you are right - it is hard to find in the US. It looks like Country Delight Iris has it but they aren't open this year.

Maybe they will open next year.



I noticed that Sirocco Mist has a few children and the breeders of those children would have had it at that time. I may also be worth contacting Keith Keppel given his close ties with Barry Blyth.

I sure hope Country Delight will still be in business next year,. Crossing Fingers! I've bought iris from Susan before and was always very happy with the rhizomes she sent.

Crossing Fingers! Good Luck Barbara! I know how frustrating it is when you can't find an iris in your own country.
