I have 15 standard dwarf bearded iris seeds that came from a bee pod on Tweety Bird. (see picture) Will send them to the first person who sends me an e-mail and two .37 stamps.

FYI-These types of iris seem to prefer ~cold winters~ and don't do very well in warmer areas of the country. The seeds also need a period of freeze/thaw activity in order to germinate. I plant mine outside in a prepared bed in November and they germinate in the spring, and will continue to germinate for several years.

The only catch to any of my "For Postage" swaps, is that if you get something nice from the seeds that I am sending you, I want to see pictures!

I think I qualify for the cold weather! I am zone 4. They look like beautiful iris. I would love to try some seed. Would it work to start the seeds inside?
Let me know if you think it might work for me.
Thank you,
P.S. I love to take pictures

Indashade, your gardens must be a wonder to see! So many colors of irises & daylilies. I can't wait to see blooms on the irises you sent me last summer. Can't I just skip winter?
