Rick, McClure & Zimmerman also sell online thru Garden Escape. If you go
to that website (http://www2.garden.com/) & search the bulb dept. for
iris, you'll find listings & PHOTOS of I. reticulata 'Harmony',
'Cantab', 'Clairette' & 'Natasha' but none of 'Pauline' (which Jeff
suggested for your dk wine purple w/ wh. signal.) The photo with the I.

doesn't give names for any other those pictured. The yellow iris show
with that mix is I. danfordiae.
