     I used to live in Zone 5/6 Kentucky, but have recently moved to Zone 9
Florida.  Some plants of Iris unguicularis are on the way.  It will be
interesting to see how they do here.  This Zone 9 is different than your
Zone 9 in that summers here are hot, humid, and with almost daily
thunderstorms, but the sun still shines most of the time.  The typical
summer day will have a maximum temperature somewhere between 32 C and 35 C.
 The soil is a well-drained sandy loam.
