re: favourite catalogues
The one catalogue that I find the most interesting is 'Adamgrove'...
pix and info on all bearded classes (not just one). I didn't order
from them but love the catalogue. :)
A little catalogue that is also fun to browse is 'Hermit Medlar's
Walk' in Massachusetts run by the Godfreys. They also have all bearded
classes and pix as well as info. Granted the pix are not big and
glossy but they are there. A few species thrown in.
'Ohio Gardens' has to be the most complete re Miniature Tall Bearded
and some Border Bearded *and* bearded species. Alas, no pix. :(
Of course, 'Ensata Gardens' has to be up there with their wonderful
pictures of Japanese irises...and they also list Siberian (no pix).
With the exception of 'Joe Pye Weed's Garden' with a few black and
white pix, I don't know of any Siberian specialists that have pix.
Other good ones: Riverside Iris Gardens, Mid-America Gardens (pix),
and Draycott Gardens (beardless only).
