Okay - for those curious and who don't have the list here it is!! The comments at each listing header are mine.

Dear Customer,

We are once again having an end of season clearance sale. Most varieties listed in this sale have been discounted by 50% or more. Many minimally priced Iris will be discontinued after this year. It is always difficult to discontinue certain varieties but we must in order to make room for new varieties. The sale is good only until September 1. No orders will be accepted after that time. We need to have time to get the entire field lifted and replanted before the fall rains begin-we hope!! Since there is only two of us and it is all dug by hand with the shovel, it takes us a long time. Sorry no foreign shipping for this sale. Orders will be shipped in rotation, first in first out, and will be dug and shipped as soon as possible. There is no bonus or gift plants on these already discounted orders. At these prices we ask that you order a minimum of three rhizomes per variety on all 2018 Mid-America Garden introductions that are in this sales list. All other varieties may be purchased individually. There are no further discounts applied to these sales prices There is also a minimum order total of $100 worth of iris plus shipping. Shipping charges will be the same as on regularly priced orders. The plants shipped are nice mature rhizomes not small left overs. We will not substitute without permission but since many varieties are in short supply a list of alternatives in order of priority is recommended. Please send your orders via email to [email protected]. Please note that the website is closed and is not accepting orders, you will need to email me the iris you want and I will prepare the order for you Your order will be confirmed and you will be notified what the charges are. Payment can then be made via paypal or we will contact you for your credit card information.

Don't shoot the messenger. Big Grin

Just thought some of you might need a replacement or two of a (slightly) older favorite, or want to jump on the chance of getting an iris you always wanted for only $7. Me? I finally finally finally got Seasons In The Sun ($7) and Auckland ($5). I also split some fine dwarf intros with Bonnie.

I looked on lunch break yesterday. I really shouldn't, and thanks to that $100 and 3 of new intros minimum (which translates into a whole lot more irises I'd have to pot, NOT THAT I HAVE THE ROOM), I'm not.

(They might got a lot more takers if they lowered that minimum purchase.)

I had to order! There were actually a lot that I would have wanted extras of since they are priced so well, but it added up quickly and I had to restrain myself to just the ones I really want to hybridize with next year.

This sale has caused me so much stress! I have a couple new beds that aren't COMPLETELY full yet, and they seem to be begging me to fill them. But on the other hand, I've already gone overboard this year . . . But such beauty at such prices!! Soooo, I looked up each non intro iris to see which ones I might want and it seemed like I deleted quite a few from the list as I went along . . . Initial wishlist-over $900!!! That's insane! So I went back to my spreadsheet and added a photo of each one and a basic color so that I could compare all the pinks side by side and all the whites or near-whites. This took forever! But I sadly moved the big majority over to the "maybe another year" tab. It was so painful and I was so exhausted, but I looked to see my new total after all the painful cuts - still over $300. Yikes! I'm afraid I need some advice from you wonderful folks as I go through the next round of cuts. Do you mind? I'll try to narrow it down to side by side comparisons of 2-3 irises that are fairly similar in photos. I want to know which ones you've found to be the more vigorous performers.

Okay, if you're willing, here goes -

Competing in the pinkish ball gowns we have the following contestants:
Miss Bubbilicious


Miss Faithfully Yours


Miss Moment to Treasure


Or Miss Hold Me Now


Someone needs to hold me now because I think all four are gorgeous and this is just the beginning!

In the whitish gown competition we have these lovely contestants:

Civility
:
Gentle Soul

My Lady's Manor
:
Winter's Smile


And there are many more to go, but we'll stop here for now.

Laura, I can't really help on comparative vigour, since I have only one of your first lot - but have you looked at the descriptions on the Mid America website? Quite often they specify whether the plant is vigorous ('instant clump' is a phrase I always like!)
Wish I had your problem! Hilarious! Hilarious! I hope you will let us know what you decide to get so we can drool... Drooling

I debated a long time on Winter's Smile then realized it was one someone just sent me. D'Oh! I must really want it! (Another white I was considering was Marble Statue). I haven't grown those pinks but love the looks of Hold Me Now.

Like Liz - I also picked up Let's Play Dress Up.

Also Daffy Duck

Ruby Tracery

The intros Bonnie & I are splitting:

Those irises are beautiful, but they do not tempt me. I think that if I grow the ones that I have, including what may result in seedlings, that I should be happy.

I am realizing, though maybe a little late, the limits of my working ability, as it has slowed considerably. This year has been the most ambitious purchasing that I have ever done, and I still have to receive a few small boxes from members and one rather large order.

I may have "bitten more off than I can chew"! Sighing! Whistling
