Bill - bearded irises don't need cold, frost or snow protection
here. The snow is their protector, our white mulch. Bearded
irises might benefit from mulching in the prairies where the
snow cover might vanish in the middle of winter. Ditto in the
freeze-thaw zones that can uproot the plants. We are usually too
cold here for too long for that to be a problem. Usually. :-)
