CULT: Survival out of the Ground

I've told this story before, but as we
have many new people on the list....
I once gave a friend some rhizomes
when I dug my beds for summer
renovation, and suggested that she
wait until cooler weather to plant them.
So she put the paper sacks of iris in =
her garden shed -- the usual type that's
unheated, uncooled, open on one side.
Then she forgot about them -- until she
spotted something unusually colorful
in the shed one spring morning and
took a closer look. After months without
water or even soil, one had managed =
to bloom. =
Needless to say, they finally got planted.
