Looking For Louisiana Water Iris(Bartering my stock)

One strain of iris i want. The authentic louisiana water iris. Any strain all i can find for sale local is bulb iris, and i hear water iris is a fleshy root ryhzome.

Willing too trade anything in my current stock for a few starters i need badly. I live in louisiana and cannot find wild anywhere.

i have things like

-excellent selection of heirloom tomatos.
-water melons
-dutch iris(miss saigon) bulbs i have tons.
-palm seeds
-excellent high yield cucumbers.
-clarkes heavenly blue morning glory seeds.
-1 fresh pack of begonia(pin-up flame)
-Sega palms, already growing very spikey and short. They get bigger and produce off shoots.(are re plantable.)

I probably have more and will update, but i will trade multiples of anything on my list for the authentic louisiana water iris(any strain).

Yes indeed, those are the ones. Yellow flag.blue flag. game cock.....

But wouldnt that seem strange ordering a plant from upnorth that grows in my state. :lol: On a good note thought ive seen alot of wild lily/iris looking plants near an old pond. Just noticed the destinct yellow bird in flight flowers. But ive been digging up every lily/tulip/iris looking plant i can find, but they have all had bulbs and not root rhizomes.

Hope these ones around this pond are what i need.

The Dutch iris i have are called miss saigon. They are a deep blue almost purple. I have near 10 bulbs left. I can do 5-6 for 5 yellow flag.
If that doesnt grab ya i can throw in a few extra seeds of something else.

Not really interested in those. Id still love too get a hold of some of the yellow flags if your still willing. Ill even throw in some blue flag seeds if your willing too wait till they come in. Ebay estimated the 29nd of this month-2nd of next on shipping. I lost interest in the bulb iris when i found they were not the water version. So id probably send some free if your not willing to trade.
