Overall, I had a positive experience with them. This company is a small, mom 'n' pop establishment and they do not have a website.
Their only real downfall is communication. You might have to call several times in order to get a response. E-mailing them is no better.
Their collection, however, is very unique. Many of the varieties they offer can no longer be found anywhere else, especially if you are looking for Schreiner, Sass, Plough or Tompkins introductions. Their rhizomes are reasonalby priced, but you do not get bonuses if you do not order from their $5.00 and up section.
Rhizome size is average, but very healthy and well-labelled upon arrival. Payment is only by personal check. I don't believe they accept credit cards. Newburn's Iris is definitely worth the lack of communication if you're a historic iris collector searching for that special iris.
