HIST:CAT: 1999 HIPS Commercial Sources List
Here -- assuming all this will line up correctly after being mailed --- is the
1999 Commercial Source Listing from HIPS, the Historic Iris Preservation
Society. HIPS is a special interest group affiliated with AIS concerned with
hybrid irises more than thirty years old and historically important Iris
species. This list supercedes any previously published list. Please observe
that there are changes this year, both additions and deletions, and changes
within the notices themselves.
This information will be published in the 1999 issues of ROOTS, the twice
yearly journal of the Society, and will be included on the HIPS webpage, but,
because this new list will not be published until the Spring issue of ROOTS,
and because some people may wish to request catalogs from these sources before
it is received, we are bringing it to the attention of this forum now.
It should be remembered that a listing on the Commercial Source page of ROOTS
is a paid notice, one for which HIPS and HIPSource are very grateful indeed as
these sources underwrite their page financially, and thereby make this very
useful current information available to you. But a listing on this page does
not constitute an endorsement of any listing nursery either by this office, or
by HIPS. We cannot warranty your satisfaction with any individual transaction.
But since we are also a referral service, we are always interested in hearing
about any experiences that are out of the ordinary, whether positive or
otherwise. We solicit all responsible information about service and
cooperativeness, or about plant quality, and we are particularly interested in
comments this year as there are some new sources listed.
Please address all questions about catalog contents to the nursery issuing the
catalog itself. They are best able to clarify, explain, or answer any
questions about their terms of trade or catalog copy.
If you are looking for referrals to places to buy specific historic irises,
please feel free to contact me off list with your questions. This office has
information provided by some nurseries about things not listed in their
catalogs. We will attempt to help all, although inquiries from HIPS members
must take precedence in busy times.
We are always interested in hearing about other sources of older or species
Here is the new list. Enjoy!
