Not live, or not bloom well, Linda? 

The traditional eastern states dividing line of which I am aware for reliable 
bloom in the larger bearded irises is old Route 20, which runs through 
Jackson, Mississippi and Shreveport, Louisiana. 

When I was arranging for bearded irises to restore the garden at Eudora 
Welty's family's home in Jackson I deliberately selected some California-bred 
historic irises--notably 'Happy Days'-- because they were more likely to bloom,  
this because they did not have much Iris variegata in them, so did not need a 
lot of cold to bloom.
