Looking for heirloom iris bred by Dr. Philip Loomis. He was most known for the Elmohr.
I would love to have Seashell, Blue Velvet, Morocco Rose and Aspenglow.

Welcome! Snauty,

There are some photos of Loomis irises on the iris wiki website. Maybe the people who posted these photos can assist you to find them.

For example, there are photos of Blue Velvet from the Pickle Barrel Collection, which I am guessing is Pickle Barrel House
