Re: OT: Rare plants

From: RYFigge@aol.com

 To be brutal, Janet, I never heard of them = as with most local nurseries, 
so it is really not a reflection on anyhone.  HOWEVER, your best bet for  
ieises is NOT from a general nursery -- they are usually more expensive, ,ay 
not be correctly named, and are  older irises for what they cost .  Don'y 
forget, I am a HIPS supporter  - I  keep a few of the oldies that I love, BUT 
I  prefer to buy irises from the specialists. and know what I'm getting.   
The biggest and best have international reputations:  Schreiner's and 
Cooley's.  of Oregon . The 2Rebloomer specialists are:   Bill Maryott's  and 
Sutton's Green Thumb of Calif.,  and Friendship Gardens of Gettysburg, PA and 
she (Joan Roberts) gives you the  States (and countries)_ and USDA zoness  
where the rebloomers grow; and  they sell other irises also.   Joan's husband 
Ken  was the Editor of the Rebloomer CHECKLIST, which is available from 
Charlie  Brown of Texas  If you want Siberians and Japanese,  Carol Warmer of 
 Draycott Gardens of Upperco, , MD,   All these gardens send out wonderful  
representatives so you think Christmas has come again!      To reiterate, I'm 
devoted to my local nurseries -- but NOT for irises!  Rosalie nr  Baltimore
