Don't know about the Brits on the list but HIPSource suggests you purchase a
RHS Plantfinder while you are there--or get someone to send you one in advance
of your trip-- and address the subject on a cultivar by cultivar basis. You
may wish to pay particular attention to Clair Austin (the same nursery that is
David Austin Roses), to Croftway Nurseries (our list-friend Graham Spencer),
to Kelways, and to V. H. Humphrey("The Iris Specialist.") Let me know if you
require further information. Another good source of leads is the advertising
section of British Gardening magazines such as Gardens Illustrated and British
Homes and Gardens, to say nothing of the RHS journal, The Garden. But I really
think getting hold of a Plantfinder is the way to go since then you can check
immediately which source stocks the specific iris you are looking for and what
their terms are. There are many smaller local ones other than those I have
