Most of the potted species have
started their spring growth -- but =

checking them reminded me of the
exception to the rule in potting bearded
iris -- DORMANT arils and arilbreds.

These should not be planted in hot
weather and watered in -- that's a
good recipe for rot.  The time to plant,
whether in pots or in ground, is when
the rhizomes have shown signs of
breaking dormancy or similar ones
in established beds have clearly =

started their fall growth.

Fortunately, many modern arilbreds
don't go fully dormant so can be
planted at the same time and treated
like TBs.
