WANTED: Irises for a Newbie

Posted by jasminegarden ( on

I would really really like some Irises. I'm a newbie when it comes to irises. I bought some thru the Internet last year, but they still have yet to bloom this spring.

Looking to trade in spring/early summer. Does anyone have some irises to spare? I would even send you postage for some, if you prefer.

Please take a look at my exchange page. I have pics of some of the plants on my list that I could email you. PLMK.

Bearded Iris are normally dug and divided in late July and August. You may want to check back in then.

What growing zone are you in?

RE: WANTED: Irises for a Newbie

I have waaaaaaaaay to many irises! Can't do it right now due to weather but would definitely be willing to do for postage. LMK

I planted these purple iris last April and they all bloomed a deep purple.

Hello Iris Lovers,

I just wanted to get an early start to collection some irises for my garden this Spring. I've posted here before and some wonderful people sent me some irises for postage. Unfortunately, all my beautiful irises perish in the recent floods. If you have any to spare, please post or email me.

Hoping to hear from you,
