Re: SPEC: rare seeds

By the way, I sent in an order for some of these Iris seeds (together 
with some Aquilegias).  I was wondering if anyone else had placed an 
order with him?  (Stupid me, I should have waited for the SIGNA seed 
list to come out because I. loczyi was on there.)

>>  that lists many strange and unusual alpine plants... mostly from eastern
>>  Europe through central Asia.  There are 4 irises listed.
