I have a limited amount of Iris hartwegii seed from high elevations
and would be willing to share with individuals that are serious about
using this species to increase the adaptability of PCN Iris Hybrids
and to share back with seed from any successes they may have. This
Iris blooms in much more shade than any other PCN species or hybrids
I have seen so could be used to develop shade garden plants. I would
ask that you send me a self addressed padded envelope for me to
return the seed to you.  If interested please e-mail me for my
address and to see what is still available as supply is very limited,
although I should be able to get some more seed this fall.
