you could try www.irisgarden.org/regbul0301.pdf or www.cgf.net/plants.php?genus=iris or members.gardenweb.com/members/exch/angelonia_anne they all talk about roring jelly, and j parker have one very much like it under a diferent name, good luck.

Hi Motinot there are a few RHS nurseries in Co. Down that stock Iris Sibirica ' Roaring Jelly ' if you search by typing in RHS nurseries then Northern Ireland in search box you should be able to locate some that are close to you .

Noticed a few in Co. Down so hope they not too far from you .

Hi M! I grow an iris similar to this but without the lovely blue patches on the petals. I think it is called 'sparkling rose' it is also a Sibirica. It has a similar purple colour, so if you can't get the one you want you could try this one....hope you get it though!

Sounds lovely Karensusan....If i dont get 'roaring jelly', i will try for 'sparkling rose'

I just checked a mail order site and I Iris 'sparkling rose' cost £3.50...BUT the postage charge is £8.50...How can they charge these prices???....:<(

I KNOW!! It has put me off ordering from several sites. I now end up buying mostly from Crocus, but it's still got to be at least four plants to make it worthwhile! lol! Taylors' Clematis nursery charges nearly £10. I think most of the mail order sites do! Try Crocus, I think they are about six pounds?

Oops, I just noticed you are in Ireland! Sorry!

J Parker charge £3.50 towards P&P, which i think is Brill, I placed an order last week and some plants are coming within 28 days and some in April/May and still just £3.50. I was on another site a few weeks ago and they wanted £18 per order, PUH.. :)))

Quite a few mail order firms wont send overseas to us here in Northern Ireland...:<(....I dont think J Parker has the Iris im looking for, though i have ordered from them and found them good...:>)

Motinot, have you looked at j parks, that is the one were I feel they have it under a different name, or one verry much like it.I think it is in the germantic section

Oh GREAT!! Good news indeed and I might just head over to their website and buy some for myself as the colour is amazing!! I found out about them when I was at chelsea a few years ago. So glad they had it!!
