<< 	Iris dichotoma or more properly Pardanthopsis dichotoma is hardy to 
 zone 4 if good drainage  exists.According to Jim Waddick's book " Iris 
 of China"  this irid grows as far north as Mongolia and Eastern Siberia
 	I grow it on thin soil over limestone with no additional water or 
 fertilizer. It blooms well every year.

Does your dichotoma set seed.  If not what is your source?  Mine came from the
SIGNA list and before I found that I had looked for years.  

Do you start the plants indoors?  From collected seed?

I think I need to pay more attention to the pH.  I live in a naturally acid
soil area.
