 My i ask on what do you bases do you makr thestatement as to thehardness of
 the PC iris I would be interested in hearing of people's
 experience with them from other members hear and on iris talk. >>

     I was thinking of factors other than cold.  A few varieties are being 
successfully grown in some of the eastern US states, but most simply will not 
tolerate the extended runs of hot humid weather in summer.  PCI's can take 
cold when covered with snow.  
     When I lived in Kentucky, I tried to grow some from BIS seed.  Three 
germinated, two of which were eaten by the darn squirrels.  The other one 
lived about three years, but a severe April cold snap [-15 C] finished that 
one off.  Had it not been in active growth...it may have survived.
