Well, I actually meant how far south in the USA will they grow.  <G>  MDBs
are the really tiny ones.  I'm surprised to hear that they grow well for
you, but not for Linda Mann who is in a colder zone than you are.  It seems
that winter coldness is not the only factor in having success with these
little charmers.

Do you grow Iris attica by any chance?
