I've read good things about Sutton's Iris Garden, although I have not ordered from them. I believe they are in the midst of moving so they are not taking orders until next year,but there's lots of eye candy on their website!

Enjoy your irises. I'm sure they'll put on a good show for you. I bought Swington for my sister and wish I had bought one for myself too!

Lots of great irises on that list, karolina. I love the smooth colors on Role Model, and Swingtown is a great grower.

There are a lot of growers- here is a list compiled by Carlos of Brighton Park Irises that I really like for its descriptions.

The American Iris Society also has a commercial directory- if you go to their page at http://www.irises.org/Resources/Commercial_Ref.html

Hi Karolina. I notice that you live in PA. I too live in PA. We can do an exchange of iris in any year that you are ready. Iris can multiply really quickly so this way you and I can save money and we can use this extra fund to buy plants that we do not have. if you are interested, please email me and I will provide you with a list of what I have. Karen

I have several you got, & you did good :) I got Stellar Lights a couple of years ago, a big sturdy iris that multiplies fast, lovely flower. Harvest of Memories is a great one, I've had it for years & it multiplies fast, almost weedlike. Usually reblooms here in my garden.
