Re: Iris s. FOB

Flight of Butterflies sibirica is a good one. You will enjoy this small
sibirica. Storage at 40 would be fine, but much of the 50's and it could
break dormancy in that garage. Try a place where it will pretty much stay at
40 or below. I overwinter quite a bit of stuff in the unheated garage here.
Stack trays and keep insulation board under and around them. Place bags of
plastic peanuts on top. Mostly rhizomes and bulbs.
