Somehow irises in barrels doesn't sound right to me -- maybe for dwarfs it 
would be pretty.  If you want something tall,  how about trying Yucca, altho 
I have no idea how that would work, but they wouldn't need drainage -- or 
else  put holes in the barrel -- all would depend on your area.  Years ago I 
tried potatoes in a barrel -- this was awhole barrel, not the cut-in-half 
variety..  It worked very well and the experiment was sort of fun to do 
because I had tried potatoes in the garden and their "foliage" takes up too 
much room for a small garden.  I forget the method, but I probably have the 
article somewhere, since I am buried under paper-work I  have kept and now 
trying to get rid of before the house sinks!  Rosalie nr Baltimore,USA , 
where we need more than a sprinkle of rain.    zone 7      ryfigge@aol.com
