Re: CULT: Easter and Irises Old and New

Thanks for the info, Jeff. Actually, my guess is that that location 
provided protection from the most dangerous aspect of cold climate areas 
- the dreaded freeze-thaw cycles of late fall and early spring.  Being 
tucked in against the north side of an (unheated?) building should have 
shielded those clumps from most direct sunlight and maintained them at a 
more constant temp than they would have been exposed to out in the open.

Then again, Sandra's were out in the open, in full sun (I assume), and 
bareroot (I assume again).  Right, Sandra?

At what point did you plant that group?
