Looking for historic iris
I'm new to this forum and I'm looking for some historic iris. I live in Massachusetts, grew up on an apple and corn farm. My mother was an iris grower, we had HUGE gardens, and she was friends with Ed & Art Watkins, the Markhams, and Ken stone...to name a few of the iris breeders. The Watkins named an iris after her called Berna Derby, which was most likely developed in the mid-to-late 50's. I have a TON of Berna Derby iris, it appears you can't get it on the market anymore. Anyway, some of the names I remember from my childhood; Dotted Swiss, Chinese Lantern, Eleanors Pride and Ice Carnival I have found and will be ordering. Some of the other iris I have been unable to find are; War Paint, Johnny Reb (not the new one that is out there), Kiki, Black Swan, Triumvirate, Major Eff, Land's End. She had SO MANY I can't remember them all! Has anyone heard of these historic iris and where I might be able to find them?
