Online rose shopping:

Also see the list of rose sellers linked under the Antique Roses article on my Plants and Gardening page.

have new roses by Paul Barden, based on gallicas and other old varieties
also carry minis developed by Ralph Moore
not sure I'd buy from them, very $$$, but worth reading
 
See all their pretty pictures! They have over 2000 varieties listed, some of which are pre-1600.  They can help you ID an iris - you can search their pics by different parameters. Also have links to sellers.
 
Old House Gardens  based in Michigan, they sell heirloom bulbs: tulips, daffodils, and other bulbs - I buy from these guys all the time!
 
Van Engelen Wholesale Bulbs  the wholesale branch of John Sheepers Flower Bulbs, they have great prices if you can buy in bulk. Check for specialty plants they sell in smaller quantities - really great prices!
