Re: Iris Lazica

gorgeous and much
more gardenable than unguicularis (in my experience). The leaves are
shorter and glossier darker green. The flowers are similar to typical
unguicularis (which is why it was considered a subspecies, I would
but appear later - around late February to early April here depending on
season. It is less temperamental (unguicularis really does need lots of
little feeding and minimal disturbance) - it grows happily in standard UK
garden conditions if given a fairly sunny position. <<
Having read this, I found a photo or two, and am convinced I want to add
this to my garden. However, I've had absolutely no luck with a U.S.
source. Any recommendations, or failing that, any advice regarding
importing plants/rhizhomes from another country?
USDA Zone 7/8, where today it is sunny, breezy, and mid-50s, and my
buttercups are starting to bloom!
