Hi Mike,
You are right, we are fine now.  Only damaged open flowers (not even all of them), they melted away and the succeeding flowers have opened and look fine.  Don't ever want to be scared like that again...

Mike,  Sorry to hear about your frost. If the temp. was above 28' you should only have damage to open buds and flowers. The other buds should bloom ok. Hope you don't get 5 days of cold like we had last year, it killed 99% of my bloom. That was a first also, I never expieranced that severe of a cold spell in the 40 years that I have been growing Iris. Hope the rest of your season is warm and nice like it should be. Good luck.    Mike in Missouri.

Well....so much for global warming.  Peak bloom has been inching later and later every year, this year it we are just approaching it and we had a freeze last night.....never before in our history have we even been close to freezing during TB bloom.  Fortunately it wasn't a hard freeze but it was quite frosty this morning.  Will have to asses the damage after sunrise....
