I'd like to set up a one for one direct plant (no seeds, please) trade for Siberian lovers. They can be named or unnamed as long as you post a picture of what you're offering. I thank everyone who helped me expand my Siberian pathway and hope to be able to repay the generosity shown to me. We can use this thread to introduce ourselves and keep in touch.

A little about myself. I'm not on much as I am a snowbird (retired) and volunteer for several organizations including sewing quilts for the local neonatal unit of the local hospital, and local returning veterans. I also manage the tool trailer for our local Habitat for Humanity construction site. We (dh and I) spend some time babysitting when our family needs help. My garden is located in upstate NY on a small lake. This is a picture of the gateway looking out of the garden.

This is the Siberian pathway. I usually have enough of the sibs in front of the gate to give some for postage. Contact me if interested.

Siberian will absolutely grow for you. They are hardy to zone 2. Something else went wrong. Look over in the culture info area, and you will see info on how to grow them.

Voodoo is probably a Louisiana. There are quite a few of them with Voodoo in the name, and they are not reliably hardy for you.

Mittsy - the foliage in your first photo is like the siberian iris I lost and am trying to replace. I LOVE that look. As close to ornamental grass as I can get. If I could get that foliage look, I'd have siberians all over the place!!

But mine was a very dark blueviol to royal blue violet color, and the flower was a bit more like a helicopter in look.

There's a lot of sibs, Bonnie, that have that kind of foliage. Summer Skies comes to mind.

Why not try the private trade area, Bonnie and see if someone would trade a sib for a bearded?

I don't know why you don't grow them, anyway. Roy Epperson grew them. Certainly Tony Avent, and you said he is near you.

actually, I don't grow them, Polly, because I keep looking for that ONE I lost! Seriously, I did love that thing. Looking back at it, I got it from a developing dealer of perennials who probably didn't know squat about irises. no telling what it was.

I know Roy grew them. We go over to weed his tomorrow. The ENCIS group is in charge of his irises in his garden until we tour it. It's on our tour for Region 4 Spring Conference. I had volunteered to spearhead everything, but got vetoed. Probably because I had no experience with sibs.

Maybe you can get some there to trade. They must need dividing by now.

don't know if it's his will, or his daughters. but the irises from his garden will all be dug and divided. Some they will give to his friends as keepsakes of him. some they want for their own gardens.

For the rest:
The newer intros will all be donated to AIS for sale as a fundraiser. The older intros will be donated to ENCIS for our next sale. So, yes, a very very good chance for me to buy some that already like NC climate!

He lived in such a modest home - full of love, within walking distance of his university job. Not a prime neighborhood, except perhaps for off campus housing. So the value of his garden cannot be recouped with the house.
