     Welcome to Iris Talk.  It is good to see a new Florida Member among 
us.  Some Irises can be grown in your area, although most of the ones 
being discussed cannot.  
     The Louisiana Irises will grow great in your area, as long as they 
are kept fairly moist.  Also, Iris virginica and Iris pseudacorus should 
do well for you too.  I have all of these types here [Marion County], 
but some are in a kiddie pool that I have sunk into the ground, and the 
rest are in large pots also sunk into the ground.  Iris tridentata is 
showing promise being cultured like this too.  
     Did you know that there is a Florida Gardening List too?  I have 
lived here only since the end of September, 1997, but I will be willing 
to help you get into Irises.
     What was your lowest temperature during this past week?  We were 
down to 19 F.
