RE: WANTED: Historic irises trade??

I grow some historic iris, however, all of my named ones are new to me and not increased for division/trade yet.

I do have a few that are not id'd yet that I have pictures of that will be ready for division this summer.

Have you tried the Historic Iris Preservation Society (HIPS) forums. They have a forum for exchanges. It does cost $10/yr to join HIPS in order to access the forums but if you like historics it is well worth it. HIPS also has an annual rhizome sale where I have obtained some of my named varieties.

I'll post a link to their website. Some good commercial sources are also linked from the website.

Here is a link that might be useful: HIPS
