Hello, you didn't sign your name.
I wouldn't worry too much about your irises not blooming the first year.
Many don't. With respect to identification - good luck. Those that are
distinctive you will probably be able to identify from pictures or
attending AIS shows. Self-coloured irises will be most difficult. On
bulk buying, I only know of Cooley's that offers a price break when you
purchase 3 rhizomes of the same cultivar. They have a website. Most
growers throw in generous bonuses with the order and are receptive to
suggestions. I have on occasion requested that my bonuses be duplicates
of any iris that I ordered.

HI !!! I am a new iris grower who lives in Mass and
I am trying to start
a small commercial venture but that is a few years
away. My friend had the
Iris Farm in NM and sent me 300 iris from her C row. Now
my question is Will
I ever be able to identify each iris correctly ??? They
tend to look similar
with slight degrees of variations in many of the colors.
The other question
is, not all multiplied how come and only 5 bloomed.
Will these be there
My friend is now off travelling and out of touch so if
you all could help I
would appreciate it.
Also where can I get rhizomes inexpensively in groups of
five or ten for each
variety to build up quickly?
I have extensive flower gardens and never worried so
much about my plants!
