I'm in Victoria, Australia. Here we are on stage 4 water restrictions.
This means we cant water our gardens at all unless it is used water from the
house. My Iris get no water other than natural rain fall and still look
healthy and wonderful, we have had less than 1/2 the average rainfall for this
year to date. My potted Iris put their roots down through the bottoms of the
pots and ground them selves, they also are doing fine. we had similar
conditions last year as well and I still got an amazing show of blooms. Many
of my first ever iris I found by the sides of roads under gum trees, some in
the hottest driest places, thriving on neglect. They are tough. Attached is a
photo of my first season 2 years ago when I moved them all here. It took me 12
months to finish planting these Iris , I finished in the September and they
started flowering the following month.
