Mike  --  Glory of Dawn is very pretty.  Is CHAMPAGNE ELEGANCE in its background?  (Iris Register seems to be down right now.)  --  Griff

Riley It was Glory of dawn in the box. The size of the rhizomes were fine no complaints there.
My problem was the packing. The small box and nothing packed around them. Rhizomes not even washed. If those iris had been delayed for a couple of weeks or even less they could end up mush. They were starting to compost. Would have been better loose in the box. Had 13 holes in the box. Why, wrapped in a bag no air could get to them. I consider the packaging unacceptable.
Got a seedling back from Region 18 at the same time. Washed rhizomes with shredded paper around them. Nice and dry no slime. 
Thanks for the nice comments on my iris. Nice to know some one noticed them. Glory Of Dawn will be introduced by Hidden Acres Iris Gardens next year. Photo Below:
