Iris biglumis is an obsolete synonym for Iris lactea.
In "Iris of China" James Waddick indicates that I. lactea is of easy
culture in any soil, hardy to zone 3 with no special requirements. Grow in
full sun in a soil that is not waterlogged.
Jeff Walters in northern Utah (Zone 4)
"This is the Place" - might even be able to grow I. lactea here
