Margie, if I remember correctly, Tom Parkhill will have an ad in the April AIS Bulletin in the years he has one he is introducing.  I bought MIAH JANE directly from him.
As to its growth, I can say it is a very good grower, but borer find it tasty, as they do most irises.  The foliage has a good, strong green color and seems a bit more resistant to leaf spot and leaf blight than many others.  That may be a biproduct of location, however, as it is a corner of the area with extra good air flow.  That always helps.
I've seen no sign of rot either.
My attempts at crosses last year failed--as did amost all others in many attempts.  2004 was not "an iris'year"--Miah Jane and Paris Fashion were two of the wonderful exceptions to what was a very disappointing season due to weather.  I've referred to the season as "the year that wasn't."
El Nino had been trying to form for the last eighteen months, but now is very firmly in place, although not especially a strong one.  That both explains the astoundingly disturbed weather world wide, and also suggests a moderately dry year in store for us here.  That would be refreshing, just if it does not go all the way into drought.
Tom Parkhill's address can, incidentally, be found in the back of most of the recent R& I's.
