(I did.  One small  AIS member iris grower and one Large AIS member iris
grower.  One ripped me good and unhappy with other one.  don't care to
mention names because they will never get my business again. Neither  will
Spring Hill. I have not had trouble with Franks but I am no expert on Iris
Ids. at least the look like the picture.)
