Which, the irises or the peacocks?  (tee hee!)

The problem we have here in the lower Zones -- which is also one of the flaws
with the whole Zone system -- isn't so much the lower temperatures but that the
lower temperatures remain for so long.  It'll get down to -15'C and then STAY
there for two or three weeks.  Alas, those plants which can survive the
occasional temperature drop cannot always endure the entire cold spell.

Thanks for the info!
