We will bundle rhizomes to make sure buyers get a good helping, but please be aware you may get several smaller rhizomes rather than one large one.   We inspect each rhizome three times during the sale process to make sure they are healthy. This is a photo of how we’re bundling Cottage Maid, which is a smaller rhizome anyway.  The rhizome on the left will ship on its own. The ones in the middle will be bundled in the bag (that’s one portion).  The ones on the right are too small and will be dried out by the sale, so we are planting those for next year’s sale. Early historics are often diploid, and their rhizomes are smaller to begin with.

Buyers, please be aware that our donors do their very best to ensure the authenticity and accuracy of the variety, and we have a very good accuracy percentage, but we can’t be responsible for misnamed irises. Keep your donor number – we can use it to try and identify an iris that blooms incorrectly. We thank you for your understanding.
