Kathryn, Thank you Kindly for so effectively clearing my doubts
about the Hardiness of this iris. I've got an address (from Rick
Tasco) for a supplier in Missouri ADAMGROVE, Route 1, California,
MO 65018. Could anyone provide the name of another supplier
hopefully in Zone 4/5? The real problem with importing the
water-requiring irises from the US is our customs. Because the
customs people are not in a hurry to get them on their way once
they have checked them. So they sit around and get dry before they
get shipped off to me. Jap irises can't tolerate this at all and
arrive either dead or hopelessly dehydrated.
