Arilbreds have done fine for me in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I've been 
gardening for about 5 summers now... and have been raising arilbreds 
for the last 4.  Most grow well in regular iris beds, but the 
touchier ones (with more aril content) should be grown in raised beds 
and buried under at least 1/2" of soil (unlike other irises which 
have the rhizomes exposed)... at least that's what works best for me.
