Iris from 1850-1920's?

For planting in northern Maryland and south central PA, which vendors should I investigate who would have a wide selection of historic iris from 1850-1920's?

Is it better to find a grower in the same zone or cooler?

Thanks. :-)

bluej iris & argyle iris have a good selection, too, & I think there's one called shadowwood or shadowood or shadow wood.

Take a look at the list Carlos put together on his website. He tells you what kind of irises they specialize in.

Here is a link that might be useful: Brighton Park Iris links
