Sharon:  If you order any iris from companies like Breck's or 
Springhill,  you are asking for trouble in this sense:  they are 
renowned for not selling iris by their proper, registered AIS names 
but by a name they give it themselves, for whatever reason.  Thus you 
may buy what you think is named, shall we say Summer Skies, when the 
proper name is Sailor's Dance.  I know of more than one person who 
has had this experience.  So, you may get an assortment cheaply and 
thus get a large start, but  it's messed up from the outset.  You can 
do just as well with people who sell only iris, esp. with the smaller 
sellers who offer assortments very reasonably.
