Dear Peter:
Check out the list of historics grown at the Malone Hollow Nature Center at:
Of course any species iris, such as Iris germanica would also qualify. Hybridized introductions, probably beginning with Honorabile, go right to the beginning of your period.
Send me a line, off list, of what you'd like, and if I have them in sufficient quantities I'll be glad to donate for the cost of postage and handling.
