I have 2 or 3 clumps of a NOID Beardless Iris, possibly I. Sanguinea for postage or trade for a Ji or sib. "In the family" for 60 years min. Western Massachusetts locale. 36" tall (Clump photo is mature @ 36" foliage), Flowers 3" tall. Prefers full sun. Grows in normal garden soil. Water like siberians. Very prolific. Two flowers /stem. Darker purple than in photos (closer to bud in close-up).

Hi Dee, just you and one other have responded so I'll send you some. I broke that clump in the photo up last year and put one big division in the wrong spot. Between that and several other clumps in the wrong location I've got plenty to send prior to bloom.

I'll need advice on preparing/packaging though. I received some sibs from Polly but earlier in the year.

Is this right? After digging I hose off the roots, wrap in damp paper towels then plastic tapped just above the rhizome?

They're about 18" tall by now. Is it best to leave the foliage alone or should it be cut like bearded?

If I send them Monday will that work for you?

Super and then let me know what you want in exchange.

Cut the foliage as Polly is a great packer and knows what she is doing...

Thank you in advance.

Dee, Polly didn't cut the foliage, I presume because they had just started to grow and the foliage was only 2 or 3" long. Here we're talking about 18" of foliage.

Go ahead and cut it back to about 6" Evan. It's going to break off anyway, if you don't. It'll grow once it gets in it's new home.

What I'm shipping out now I cut the foliage or not, depending on how long it is. It will be fine.

Some of the siberians going out have foliage that will not fit in the large flat rate boxes while others that are late the foliage is very short...so on the tall ones they get cut to fit and the shorter ones NOT

I'm afraid I really dont have anything to trade, but would be interested if available by postage. They are gorgeous. I've never grown anything besides bearded iris. Do these require different techniques in order for them to flourish like in your photo?
thank you,
Ayrica

FYI growing these Iris in my response to Ayrica.
Hi Ayrica, I can't speak to the similarity with bearded as I just started growing some of those. Polly has a great article about growing siberians, which I think these are similar to, here http://cubits.org/irisforum/pages/118/. One thing I know is different is that they like water during the entire growing season. They don't appear to NEED as much watering as Japanese Iris and they don't seem to suffer from neglect, at least here in z5b/6. Also I always bury the rhizome 1 to 1-1/2" below the soil AND add 1-2" of mulch.

C-mail from sassafras:
I was just thinking about it a little while ago, I do have some bulbs from a cute little tulip I could send. Or I could send some peony starts. I'm afraid with the peony I dont know the colors, I've moved them around so many times I seem to have them coming up in several places...lol anyhow just let me know if you are interested in those.
this is the tulip mentioned. Thumb of 2011-05-21/eclayne/814548

thanks again,
Ayrica

My pleasure Polly. I only wish I had offered them 6 weeks ago when growth was just starting.
