I need to divide my Siberian irises. They are bright purple and very hardy.

Email with interest and we can get in touch! 



Will be dividing my perennial bed and have quite a bit of Shasta Daisy, a mix of pink and white Phlox, Lamb’s Ears, Garlic Chives, Jacob’s Ladder, Geranium maculate (wild geranium), some Jack in the Pulpit, and a few Cardinal Flower.

I will love to take any of those that are shady, minimum sun plants. Thanks!



I have Iris, also some rebloomers, numerous Asiatic lilies, 30 varieties of hosta, & over 50 varieties of daylilies EM- Late varieties 2.5"-8" bloom mostly dormant, plus a few other perennials that would trans plant well at this time.  I'd be willing to swap for purple dome asters, reblooming Iris, Asiatic or oriental lilies that I don't have , hostas, Bright eyes tall Phlox,  double daylilies or other larger ones by name only.  I'm 12 miles west of Wausau a digging list is available.



I  have several yellow and  dark purple bearded iris rhizomes available. Free to anyone interested! They are lovely, healthy plants, already dug and waiting for a new sunny home.
