     I have not tried growing Irises in large barrels, but I have had decent 
luck growing some Tall Bearded Reblooming Irises in large pots filled with a 
good quality potting mix.  Thinking of these Irises, BUCKWHEAT and HOLY NIGHT 
are in bloom now.  Yesterday, someone took a closer look, thinking they would 
be fake.  Only the smell test convinced them.
     Freezing could be a problem in some climates, but they all survived 
temperatures as low as 12 F last winter with no protection.
