If anyone knows of a commercial source for Apache Rose (Meek '82), or, if you grow it, and would consider selling a start, or trading, please let me know. Bluebird has it listed, but I've not heard back, so I'm trying to find an alternate source, if I need it....Thanks.....Arlyn

Hi Arlyn-

I should be able to send you some, but can't check until next week.

Here's my Apache Rose:

Hi Arlyn-

I can send you a couple of rhizomes. They're small, but should do fine. Anything else you're looking for?

I don't suppose you have Blackhawk(Schrieners1941), or Raspberry Ribbon (Schrieners 1951)? I can't locate Blackhawk anywhere, and raspberry ribbon was ordered, but they can't supply it this year. Aren't you collecting Austen's iris? Or am I getting confused?....Arlyn

I don't have those two. No, I don't collect Austen's.

C-mail me your address.

A LARGE tree fell into the iris, so I have to fight the mosquitos this w/e and rescue them. Looks like it broke a lot of fans off, but the rhizomes should be ok.

If I remember, you're doing an Indian themed bed? Looking at my list, do any of these tempt you?

Indian Pow Wow (dwarf)
Ghost Dancer (arilbred - this one may have died out)
Brave Face
Cherokee Tears
Chief Waukesa
Indian Ceramics
Lakota Warrior
Navajo Jewel
War Chief

Well, a public "Thank You", to Neil! That's one of the wonderful things about this site...everybody is so friendly and helpful! I think if the Congressmen were all growing iris, the country would run MUCH smoother !!...Arlyn

Thanks Arlyn amd Marilyn.

They didn't look very pretty because my iris haven't started growing yet from their summer dormancy. But they should like your weather much better......

As far as iris go, they don't have to be pretty at the bottom to be beautiful on the top ! Thank YOU!...Arlyn
