	Klehm used to be one of my favorite large nurseries and even last
	year, I bought some really wonderful plants (peonies, hems, etc.).

	However, these year's cat. is very different. There was a post on
	the peony list lamenting that their peony section (their 'flagship'
	plant) was shrinking every year. More hems than anything else since
	I assume that is where the money is?

	I will add that the Siberian iris listing is down to THREE
	cultivars. They list no cultivars from the Hollingworth's which
	were their biggest section of Siberians.

	The prices are out of whack...for instance, $15.95 for SNOW
	PRINCE which is being sold by specialist growers for under $8.00.
	The Abrego's nursery, Chehalem Gardens in Newburg, OR offers it for
	$7.50 and they always send healthy, big divisions. I can personally
	recommend Chehalem without a moment's hesitation. Every one they
	sent me last year bloomed magnificently this year which is unheard
	of in my tundra zone. Tom Abrego is the Pres. of the Society for
	Siberian Irises and Ellen Abrego was born a Schriener - same
	iris family. The Abregos specialize in Siberian and spuria
	irises. Check them out:
