On the positive side- George's communication was very good, as was the packing.
Not so good- Yes, he did include a note apologizing for the small size of some of the rhizomes due to the drought this year. Unfortunately, many of the iris I rec'd were so small, they really shouldn't have been sold, or there should have been a notation on the website description explaining they were smaller than usual as a "heads up". Granted, he had many iris on sale, but that doesn't indicate how tiny some of them would be. I was disappointed since he some varieties I couldn't find elsewhere.
Anyway, I contacted him to return quite a few of the iris. $5-$8 for rhizomes the size of my fingertip (small) with dried up fans & roots was not acceptable. We worked it out, but I wouldn't order from him again. I'm sure he feels the same about me after this experience, but oh well, there are several sellers out there who have won me as a customer in the future for sure.
I understand we can't control the weather, but sometimes it's best to just mark an item unavailable rather than sell it if it isn't up to par.
