Re: TERESA COBB - Request for iris sources

Teresa:  Welcome to the list, where you will learn all you ever 
wanted to know about iris but were afraid to ask!  Well, maybe not 
quite, but close.  As to wholesale sources, I am of no help, but it 
occurs to me that the cheapest and best source of a lot of iris would 
be the annual rhizome sale of your nearest AIS local affiliate.  At 
least, that would be the case if you lived here, and I think many 
others do as we do.  Come July (the time differs depending on the 
locale) we always order new things from a couple commercial growers, 
and these we auction.  But spread out on several tables are rhizomes 
brought by the society members, and these are priced at $1, $2, or $3 
apiece.  One can get a huge amount of iris for not a huge amount of 
bucks, and, of course, you help the treasury of the club, too.
