But, I cannot seem to get anyone to tell me if there are other
aril/arilbred specialists catalogs available, who puts them out and their
address!  One of the major ways I learn about a new group of iris (new to
me) is to send for catalogs with good descriptions.  This is a very
comfortable method for me, as I can go over the information again and
again.  The reblooming section, for example, prints a list of catalogs
available that specialize in rebloomers, plus the addresses.  I have not
seen such a list for the Aril section (perhaps I missed it?), nor have I
seen a book covering Arils/Arilbreds for sale mentioned in any of their
publications.  This is somewhat frustrating for a newcomer who is trying to
learn about this class of iris in a timely fashion.  My daughter has been
advised to obtain the tetraploid WELCOME REWARD, for example, but the few
catalogs I have do not list it.  Surely, someone musts list it?  Thanks for
your help!
