free iris in Atlanta area - FREE IRIS

I have been digging up all the iris today and just hate the thought of putting them in the compost. They are (I think) called German iris, about knee high, purple, many flowers per stem. Good bloomers, usually in March.
If you are in this area you know how wet and soggy the weather has been. It is like a Turkish bath out there right now! These (very crowded) iris are getting those little mold spots on them and I decided I HAD to thin them out. Now I have a big pile (100 or so) that I would love to see someone take. I have cut them into fans (as the spots need to be cut off) and they are ready to plant.
Everything I read on the web says that as long as the rhizomes are firm and full (and they are) you just need to trim off the leaves with spots (which I have done).

If you are interested, I am in Dunwoody, and you can reach me by email - you have to decipher this as I really HATE the spam bots - as sterhill at comcast dot net.
Any takers??

If I was near by I'd take all of them, but it's a bit of a drive from the high mojave desert of calif. to there. But iris love my garden area.

I wish I had known about this earlier. My son just was in Atlanta over the weekend. If you could hold on to them a couple more weeks, I'd come and get 'em. I'm in Charlotte. I couldn't get them this weekend as my son is getting married Saturday and relatives are staying over. Post again if you don't get any other interest.

In addition, they should keep for a good while. Our iris have moved from Calif., to Colorado, to Dallas, and now in Charlotte.

Thanks - the irises have been "spoken for" and will have a good home. A lady from this area is going to come get them.
Thanks, Sterling
