Iris vartanii bulbils - offered
« on: September 12, 2009, 11:33:51 AM »
Just been repotting this and have lots of small bulbils (up to about 7 mm height sort of size) that I can't really accommodate - anyone want any?

I would love some but can't import bulbs alas. But DON'T be tempted to throw them out. Let someone have them. This species is now exceptionally rare. It would be criminal to destroy them. I hope some UK iris growers will take up your offer.

I'm sorry, but I've sent them all off now. I can perhaps send you a bigger bulb next year, though?

David,

Hopefully there'll be something I can send you next Summer if you're still interested.

I posted some earlier in the year, don't remember which thread though. Here's a recap.

Anthony,

Marcus Harvey from Hillview Rare Bulbs in Tasmania has it on his catalogue periodically.  That is Iris iberica ssp elegantissima at least.  Is that what you're after?  It would need to change hemispheres, but if you can't find it anywhere else there is him at least.  He usually sends out his catalogue just before Christmas, and does sell overseas.  I can provide contact details if you (or anyone else) wants them.
