Lowell beat me to the punch in enthusing about Keith Keppel.  I visited
Keith two years ago and walked his seedling beds--fantastic experience.

Last year I indulged myself in several 2001 Keppel intros and got top
quality, fresh plants with very, very generous extras.  The plants look
great at this point and I am eagerly awaiting bloom on things like 'Broad
Shoulders' and 'Jersey Cream.'  Keith has some fantastic seedling lines
going and some knock-your-socks-off iris in the pipeline.

Strongly recommended!
