I have not bought iris in wholesale quantities, but then I don't have 10
acres either (and Graham Spencer, our friend from England, says he grows
27,000 iris on just two acres), but I do know that a number of reputable
commercial iris growers I have dealt with do make special offers of iris in
quantity at deep discounts (1/3 to 1/2 of catalog price). These are usually
end of season offers of excess stock, but they are named and labeled and
seem like good value for someone who wants a large number of iris without
needing to get only certain specific varieties. If this sounds interesting
to you, I would be glad to send you some names and addresses off-list.
