To Chad and others in warmer winter areas,
We'd suggest trying some of the SDBs (mostly rebloomers) of John Weiler,
who hybridized them in a very hot climate in California's Central
Valley--Fresno. These specifically are ones we know of that will do
better in warmer winter areas. Those of you who are unfamiliar with any
of Dr. Weiler's irises, ask and we will recommend a few of his that we
particularly grow and like.
Superstition Iris Gardens
Central California foothills--Zone 8
We're watering our fields today, the iris are starting active growth
now--several weeks ago, we were just trying to get the RAIN to stop!!
