   We don't sell any unnamed iris, but sometimes people
(including me) have brought unknowns in as freebees. I only
have a few unknowns (the result of questionable catalog or
Frank's purchases that turned out to be mismarked). Most of
these I have gotten rid of, but there are some that are
such good growers that I keep them. I decided not to bring
them to the sale this year, on the theory that people would
load up on them rather than buy something. We generally
have an excess of rhizomes to sell.
   There was a "free" box at one sale, which mostly
consisted of very small, but named rhizomes that should
never have been brought. There were three people that
rummaged through there and must have taken out 50 free
rhizomes each. It was like the barbarians sacking Rome...
