One of the strong points of our favorite genus - Iris - is that there are
forms that grow and bloom in every Zone from 2 to 10 at least. This is not
true for many other plant groups. There are many plnats that are commonly
grown in gardens in California and the Deep South that you or I could not
grow as garden plants and vice versa. There are acid-loving plants that I
expect can be grown in your area that are nearly impossible here and alpine
and semi-desert plants that flourish here that would turn to mush in your
humid climate.

My opinion, for what it is worth, is that in the start-up phase of this
project, at least, we concentrate on irises and do not include other
