HAVE: Tall Bearded Irises

Posted by mikesc Coastal SC, Zone 8 (My Page) on

After a potential move to a larger home/yard has fallen through, I have a large number of healthy tall bearded irises which must be thinned significantly to allow room for new plants ordered back in the winter. They'll begin arriving in late August.

I have around twenty varieties from the top hybridizers in the nation, of all colors, that I would like to trade for seeds, bulbs, or anything I might be able to store until next summer when I do move. If you are interested and have a particular color in mind, I can respond with photos and information about that particular cultivar. All of these irises have performed very well for me in Myrtle Beach, SC, and Tall Beardeds do well in both Carolinas. I keep careful notes and can tell you precisely when any given cultivar has bloomed for me here in Zone 8.

If interested I am at

RE: HAVE: Tall Bearded Irises

TB irises are my favorite! Not sure if I have anything you would like, but I do have cannas, two kinds, lots of perennials & seeds. Please check my list and let me know, and also if there's anything not on it that you are looking for. I love blue, purple, clear yellow and white for the iris colors.
