CULT: Response to hard freeze

  • Subject: CULT: Response to hard freeze
  • From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Iris danfordiae and Iris reticulata 'George' and 'Springtime' are in full
bloom here in central VA and have been for about a week.  The last two
nights have been in the teens, and the flowers are none the worse for wear.
Likewise the foliage of Dutch irises and of I. bucharica seem undamaged by
the freeze.

Freshly developed foliage about 4" tall from Iris typhifolia appears
undamaged, as os the nearly evergreen foliage of Iris albicans.

Severe damage, however, on Iris japonica foliage in both the plain and
variegated varieties.
