I just read your article in Dave's Aug 19 newsletter & note that you say that iris can be grown all over the U.S. I used to live in TN, and had lots of iris. I now live in Punta Gorda, FL (zone 10) and miss these lovely flowers. Can I grow them here, and if so, what do you recommend.
Thanks,

Head over to the Iris forum - there are several growers over there that just love Iris and they are from zones 9 and 10.

Mitch,
Thank you for that suggestion. I am going to go to the Iris forum. I love purple Iris. When I was growing up in Fresno, CA, every year my Mother had a flower bed with deep purple Iris and bright yellow dafodills. It was so pretty. When my Father died in 1976, I helped my Mother move here to Florida, and we brought some of her Iris. I have a pot with 4 rizomes of her Iris. I never planted it in the ground, because something about our soil causes everything I plant to have a problem with wilt. The Iris seems very healthy, but it has never bloomed in the 34 years I have had it. I hope I can learn something I can do to get it to bloom.
