Good data points to consider.  I live about 20 miles WNW of her and
have had success with good divisions planted in late August and
early September.

  Here in Lexington, Ky spring planting is good.

I've only planted a few in the spring, but those few have done very
well.  I got them from Greer Gardens, not an iris specialist and
therefore not carrying a broad selection, but the divisions they sent
were good.   The ideal situation would be a source that could send
great divisions in the spring, but for the most part I'm happy with
great divisions whenever I can get them.      --Jim
