Here are some of the commercial sources for historic iris that I
particularly like.

The two I like the best (and order the most from) do not
have web sites:

Superstition Iris Gardens
2536 Old Highway
Cathey's Valley, CA 95306
They have a photo gallery of the irises they sell at:
This page has pictures of the historics they offer:
They're a tour garden for this year's national
convention, and just put out their 2004 catalog.

Bluebird Haven Iris Garden
6940 Fairplay Rd., Somerset CA 95684
Lots of historics, including many Lloyd Austin iris.
Haven't seen their 2004 catalog yet, but it should
be out soon.

Argyle Acres: http://www.argyleacres.com/

Riverview has tons of historics in their catalog.
I have limited experience ordering from them -
the one time I tried they were out of the
particular historic I was looking for, though
they came through with the non-historic I wanted
and gave me generous extras as well.

Hope this helps,

zone 9, SF bay area, with tons of early bloom!
