Welcome, Toni,

You're going to have to fight a whole lot of people on this list for 
the title of best lover of irises!  You will learn as much as you can 
absorb from this list.

Where are the rhizomes you purchased last year?  Are they protected 
at all?  Have had air?  Inside or outside?  Irises are the toughest 
of plants; you may be able to plant them now and see if they are 
still viable.  Maybe in pots, in an unheated garage until they can be 
planted out next spring?  Moist but not wet?

Patricia Brooks

(Identify yourself with place and climate zone; it helps others help 
you with advice.)
