RE: favourite catalogues
I had forgotten about Ensata. Yes they are up there with wonderful
Also, I forgot to mention Chuck Chapman. No pictures but the largest
listing I've ever seen of medians. A lot of rebloomers and historicals
too. And Canadian.

The one catalogue that I find the most interesting is
pix and info on all bearded classes (not just one). I
from them but love the catalogue. :)
A little catalogue that is also fun to browse is
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
and some Border Bearded *and* bearded species. Alas, no
Of course, 'Ensata Gardens' has to be up there with
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
and Draycott Gardens (beardless only).
