Dear Ina,
	I think I can answer for Iain.

	SIGNA sends many seeds to New Zealand. Almost all are allowed 
entry because they fit the Basic list and do not require any post 
entry quarantine. You as importer do not need to have an import 
permit either.

	All Japanese Iris are cultivars of a single species Iris 
ensata. Natural variation has been selected for hundreds of years to 
produce the current range of modern Japanese iris.

	And as Iain also said the named modern cultivars are 
spectacular if you can accommodate their specific growing needs.

		Good luck with growing these from seed. 	Best 
		Jim W.
