Louisianna Culture - equatorial

A few weeks ago there was an enquiry about growing irises in an equatorial
I have contacted one of my customers in Darwin, which is near the equator. She
has been growing Louisiana irises for some years and says they grow extremely
well for her. The ones in full sun bloom very well but because she was worried
about the very hot sun, she had planted some in shade and they do not bloom
well, although they grow well. So obviously no need for chilling. She says
they go mad during the wet season and walk everywhere.

I thought this might be of interest
