This year's seeds donated by:
    [BNW] Brian Wendal, MA, USA
    [DCL] Debby Cole, Mercer Island, WA, USA
    [DKR] Dennis Kramb, Liberty Township, OH, USA

    VF = Very Few seeds (less than 25) available.
    FW = Few seeds (under 50) available.
    AV = Seeds are generally available.
    AB = Abundant supply of seeds.
    x = Seeds are sold out!
    OP = open pollinated.
    HP = hand pollinated.
    WC = wild collected.

2021 seed packets are $1.00 each.
Surplus packets are $0.50 each.

Inventory is NOT updated automatically. Refunds are NOT provided. 'VF' and 'FW' items will sell out quickly so if you do not specify substitutes your payment will be treated as a donation to SIGNA.

Use the checkboxes below to select which seeds to "buy" or request as "sub" (substitutes). Seeds in short supply will not be used for substitutes (therefore no checkbox is available to select them as subs).

Additional Donation?
Sending in an order is an opportunity to donate to support SIGNA.
Costs of all supplies and postage are constantly rising.
Please consider rounding up your payment to help us.

Where are we shipping to?

Australia is currently not accepting First Class international packages due to COVID staffing limitations, making shipping prohibitively expensive. We can hold your order until this resolves.

This year's online Seed Sale has ended. The seeds will be available in person to attendees of the American Iris Society convention this spring. And afterwards they will be moved to the online Surplus Seed List at a discounted price.

Your mail server may accidentally consider your order confirmation as spam. If you do not receive email notification of your order from SIGNA within a few minutes of making your payment on PayPal contact the webmaster at dkramb@gmail.com for help. Copies of all orders are now stored on the website as backup. You should receive one notification from SIGNA and another notification from PayPal.

© 2021, SIGNA. For general inquiries about SIGNA please contact Rodney Barton. Please report technical problems to dkramb@gmail.com.
