<< I wouldn't be surprised if you could raise these outside in your area. I've
 read they can take up to z6. Anyone know for certain? >>

     I don't think they are that hardy.  A couple of Iris japonica plants I 
put in the ground did not survive 12 F here in Florida.  Those that I grow in 
pots, and put in an unheated garage on freeze nights have thrived.  However, 
I am surprised that I still do not see buds this year.
