Look its really great to show the latest and greatest Siberian Iris but it would be wrong not to point out to readers that, listed within the 2009 catalogues of Siberian Irises from all growers contains some fantastic varieties with reasonable price tags .(Check out Siberian Links for a grower in your area).
Sweet Little Susie is one of many great selections available in the six to eight dollar price range, an amazing shorter growing iris for the front of the border. So if you are new to growing Siberians or have never tried these Irises you can buy a great perennial priced for way less than a flat of Annuals.

Joe Pye Weeds Garden have an great range which includes a few special priced Siberian Irises which are available for Spring shipping only, and will not be available again after that. These are marked in the catalogue with *Spring only, and all are very fine Siberians. Catalogue can be downloaded.
