I encountered a local grower here that will ONLY sell their iris while they
are blooming. I learned of this after last summers bloom season was over. A
friend mentioned buying iris from them and receiving large clumps for very low
prices. When I called to inquire about varieties I wanted and understood they
had, I was informed in a rather haughty tone that their selling season was
over for the year - and it wasn't even July yet!
