I'm afraid to plant anything I pre-ordered after my experience with Breck's daylilies. Notice: Brecks did not post any of my reviews for their products that were less than 3 stars. Read the reviews at the BBB before you buy; Brecks sold me expensive bulbs claiming that they were fancy purple daylilies and they turned out to be $$$ for yellow and orange. At least I can be reasonably sure the irises are probably purple. Reblooming? Specialty color? It's a gamble. Go elsewhere for bulbs and plants. Even Amazon has more reliable plant sales. THEY ARE A BOOK STORE!!!
