I want add some words:
Moscow climate is temperate-continental. Annual amplitude of average monthly
temperature is for Moscow 51F (Paris 29F, Berlin 34F, Warsowie 40F).
Annual average temperature 39F, abs. maximum 99F, abs. minimum -44F.
In Baltic state's gardens you may find peachtree. It's impossible in Moscow.

Certanly, writing 'freezes' I meant night frosts. But this problem give 
much more trouble, than any winter frost.
Late May frosts happen regularly when stalks begin appear, and often kill
them. It's a problem and for gardener: if they have no patience wait June
to plant tomatoes, they often lose them.
June 5 to June 25 - it is usual dates of Moscow Iris Show. But microclimate
of my own garden is such, what irises begin bloom one-two week later, than
in my colleague's gardens.
