These two Irises interest me. Iris pseudacorus is known to do well in
Florida. This makes me wonder if one or both of these Irises would grow
here. I am very interested in the various types of Iris pseudacorus. If
anyone in the deep south has had experience growing these plants, or in a
comparable climate overseas, I would like to hear how they do.
