I believe what Lloyd was refering to as seedlings are the offspring of
planned crosses.  These are "usually" unnamed and unregistered iris and
can be full sized.  

You should be able in the fall, I would think it is too late now, to dig
an iris or a piece of a clump and carefully with as much rootball as
possible, put into a pot and place it under your lights.  Or start a
single plant in the spring in a pot and then in the fall bring it under
the lights.  Make sure it is a good sized rhizome and of course a known
and dependable rebloomer.
