Hello,
I am interested in finding some black iris. I am willing to buy them if anybody has any. I used to have them and would love to get them back.
thanks, sue

Hi Sue,

I think I have a couple that are pretty black - would need to see what shape they are in to dig now.

I'm glad I checked here since my receipt of notices/messages seems hit or miss any more. Which one and also I need time to check to see if either looks nice enough to send. Please mail me at [email protected] and we'll see if we can work something out.

Hey Suzy,

I have "Black Gamecock" louisiana iris....though I have to say that Pat's "Before the Storm" really does look black!

Let me know if you're interested in BGC.

If you sent me an e-mail Suzy I did not see it. In any case, if the really black looking one is what you are interested in, I did check it and it really is looking too bad to do anything with right now. We have just finally had some good rains. If I get a chance, I'll try to clean up my iris patches and perhaps you can check with me towards the beginning of September to see if they look better.

Sounds good pat, I understand. I did send an email but my new account has been acting up. I just ordered some black iris from an iris farm so we'll see how that goes.
Thanks so much for trying to help me.
Best
wishes, sue Thank You!

So sorry I could not be of help right now. Which ones did you order? The black ones can be really striking.
