If your drainage is excellent they may be fine. With the remnents of Floyd I 
got over ten inches of rain in the garden in one afternoon--that was the day 
that one of the historic neighborhoods of Richmond was washed in to the James 
River--but after the rain came the breezes and my irises were no worse for 
wear. Did not notice much more rot than usual, either.
