i am looking for the historic iris "butterfly wings - this was on a "to be purchased list" found in my grandmother's papers

Butterfly Wings

It's on my list, too, so I ordered it earlier this year from Bluebird Haven (http://www.bluebirdhavenirisgarden.com/), which has an astounding collection of historics (and has recently added a great picture of Butterfly Wings, BTW). At the time I ordered, I was told that they "probably" will have it available, but not certainly. At any rate, if not this year you should be able to get it from them sometime after.

I'd be curious to know what else was on your grandma's list--historics are my favorites, and part of the charm is knowing little things about their historical contexts.

Good luck!

Thank you Brett for the great link. Bluebird has an amazing selection and prices are reasonable.

Hosenemesis - amazing connection. Your wonderful 'New Leaf' is in bloom. I need to bring it forward beside the lavender to show off more1
