As another person already suggested, Barry Blyth at Tempo Two in Australia
has a lot of gorgeous iris, and you won't have to pay quarantine fees. His
LOISA'S SONG is a truly superior iris, and it already has some impressive
looking children. Tempo Two also carries many American introductions, which
might reduce your import costs.
I also like Ghio introductions a lot, as you obviously do. EPICENTER,
DOUBLE DRIBBLE, LAUGH LINES, SOCIETY PAGE, SKIPALONG, DAWNING, and SELECT
CIRCLE come to mind as superior in appearance and garden habits. Hager's
TIMESCAPE has always been a favorite.
If rebloom (and vigorous growth) is more important than exquisite form, many
of (the late) Monty Byers introductions would serve; particularly STINGRAY
(blooms almost constantly, 11 multi-branched stalks for me right now in the
middle of winter from a 3-ft. long row), also ROCK STAR, REINCARNATION, and
John Reeds, in sunny southern California
