National Reference Collections of Iris unguicularis that are held in the UK:

R D Nutt
Great Barfield, Bradenham, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire HP4 4HD UK
Telephone: (+44) (0)1494 563741
Collection of 15 different species and cultivars

Ann Ala
Hall Farm, Weatheroak Hill, Alvechurch, Birmingham B48 7EG UK
Telephone (+44) (0)1564 822131
Collection of 25 different species and cultivars

Information from the Plant Finder Reference Library CD-ROM - a very useful
piece of kit for finding ANYTHING in Europe, especially the UK. It also lists

useful long list of websites of a horticultural nature. If you're interested,
Headmain, Lakeside, Whitbourne, Worcester WR6 5RD UK
Fax (sorry I do not have a phone number): (+44) (0)1905 640415
