Hey Philip! Years and years ago I also did this, too...but now I would only
buy dwarf irises from a nursery that specializes in irises. The big
nurseries that sell all kind of plants serve their purpose, but if you want
really clear colors, attractive flower form, and beautiful patterns an iris
specialist nursery is the place to grow. I am using my words carefully in
this message because I do not want to adversely affect anyone's business when
they are honest plant sellers....but quality is with the specialists. If you
see some of the dwarfs that have been introduced in the last 20 years you
will know what I am trying to say here...and dwarfs are really inexpenisive
even from specialists! Glad to have you with the iris people! Clarence
