Otto, with your skills I am very  hopeful of the Iris  thriving for you.  Harold Esslemont was still sowing Fritillaria seed at  nearly 90, so you are but a youngster!   

Such a beautiful iris. Is there anyway to get this iris in the UK?

Hello Maggi ,
I germinated 2 seeds of I. stocksii this year . Maybe I will be fortunate to live long enough to see it in flower ? Hopeful at 78 .

The number of people around the world with access to this beautiful Iris  can probably be counted on the fingers of one hand - so you are extremely fortunate.
