Re: Re: HIST: black list

Dave and Jean,  
Thanks for posting the info. on sources of historics! I've contacted a couple already, so we'll see what turns up, "Black List" and others.

A couple of other excellent sources for historic iris
(and possibly some of the black list ones) are:

Bluebird Haven Iris Garden
Mary has many more iris than she lists in
her catalog - email her for questions about
a specific variety.


Superstition Iris Garden
2536 Old Highway, Dept. H
Catheys Valley, California 95306-9738
Phone: (209) 966-6277

(as far as I know Superstition doesn't have a web site,
though you can reach them by email at randrcv@sierratel.com
and they have a large number of pictures of the iris they
sell viewable at: http://community.webshots.com/user/rickt103
Page 2 of the three pages is where the historic iris pictures are)

zone 9, SF bay area
where one last Japanese iris opened yesterday!
