There are two places that I have dealt with that "spring ship".....if you order early enough, and , of course, if you want it that way. I've had pretty good luck with spring planting, too. *occasionally*, I'll even get a bloom that first year, although, I think that weakens the plant. Comparing "spring planted" to "September planted".....spring works out better for me. I'm sure climate and soil conditions are the dictating factors in when the *best* time is. I always try to specify early July as a shipment date from most vendors....and that works well. August is too hot, and dry, and it seems that , without potting them, the iris just sit there without starting new root growth....no matter how much I water them. September planting usually sees a quicker start to root growth.....but they aren't 'advanced" enough by the time things start shutting down for the season.
