Re: Growing/Climate


That ain't cold, we were down -5 last night. I have not seen our irises
since 10th of Dec. The only spot that you can see is where the deer tryed to
find acorns. I am not walking out to that through 10 inches of snow and ice.

>Catching up with e-mail again--sorry to be slow answering.  Yes, just a bit
west of St. Louis in Washington, MO, you will be Zone 5.  The zone map shows
(or used to?) Zone 6 swooping up to put a finger over the St. Louis area.
All those trees, buildings, and escaping heat I'm sure (after looking at my
gas bill, I'm positive!) And I'd say Missouri Botanical Garden (totally
walled and farther downtown) is a good half-zone warmer than the rest of us
in the suburbs--things certainly bloom earlier and don't winter-kill as
readily.)  Not that we haven't had some Zone 5 winters--down to 17 below
once, I remember!  And this looks like being one of them.

>nylah@brick.net in 5 degree cold this am and frustrated because I was going
to do a bit more mapping of iris rows--but the snow is over the labels.  Ah,
well, nice to have snow cover when it's cold, for a change!   Wishing you
all a happy Christmas!
