I bought a healthy rhizome of Thornbird this summer and paid approximately
$2.00 (US) for it. However, I purchased it from a local grower who charged
me $2.00 or less for every bearded iris that I purchased. I think the price
that I paid for these TB's was atypical of what one would pay for any mail
ordered bearded iris. I got some lovely bearded irises (mostly rebloomers)
from my local grower, for little of nothing. Additionally, my local grower
didn't skimp and I got 4-5 fans of each iris that I purchased. I'll
probably continue to purchase bearded irises locally, unless I get some
money that's burning a hole in my pocket.
I think that your price for Thornbird in US dollars compares reasonably well
with the going rate in the United States.
