Re: Species irises
Has anyone on this LIST ordered from McClure & Zimmeramn, "quality flowerbulb
Under their Miscellaneous and small bulbs, they list several dwarf iris,
I. danfordiae, several I. histrioldes(Frank Elder, and Katherine Hodgkin
varieties) some I reticulata (varieties Cantab, Clairette, Harmony, Natasha)
and, Spanish Iris-- ( I. xiphium) which they say is similar to Dutch Iris,
but smaller bulbs.. It is often called "poor Man's Orchid" -- anyone grow
I had the catalogue out because I have a bulb that is either a Crinum, or
a Nerine -- excellent catalogue.
They also list other bulbous and rhizomatus iris.
