Thank you ever so much for taking the time to write such an extensive and educational note to me. I have learned a lot. I will  So tell me if I order from you in your April month. Will those seedlings last until October which is our planting season?

Your small space and the timing is what led me to suggest you spend time deciding exactly what you wanted and order in the spring or early summer.  You will be planting approximately 32 plants, if you purchase the TBs, the type of plants you've been seeing here.  It should contain early to late varieties in blooms of your choice. 
<<Will it be hard to find a garden company that is shipping from the states or do I have to order from Austraila>>
Keith, it is now spring in Australia.  They are enjoying bloom season and making crosses.  Not their shipping season.  Home  Barry Blyth (Tempo Two . . .Aust) ships to America on two dates in the (our) spring.  April in my area, but there is an earlier date that he ships to warmer regions.  February?  Other Australian gardens may have different schedules. 
Iris shipping season in America is usually pretty short.  Typically starting around July 4 and ending Aug 30th to Oct.15th or so.  This is basically TB's which I deal with personally.  Some of the other types ship later. 
Most of the smaller iris suppliers have to quit shipping early so they have time to plant and do other garden work in their own gardens.  Also, most suppliers schedule according to the average gardener.  The plants need 6 weeks for the roots to develop and support the plants through colder temperatures. 
I don't know of any iris catalogues that ship at this time.  Anyone else know of anyone that might still ship to Keith?? 
You might email or call Schreiners (their season is over) and explain your situation, about the desert and your planting season.  They are good about helping people and will help you IF they can.  Contact Schreiner's Iris Gardens
Good luck!
