> Anyone ever tried little 'rain caps' for these unhealthy irises?

Last year, I purchased EURYTHMIC and kept it indoors in a pot in a cool
window thru the winter.  It grew really well, put on increase.  Then I
moved it outdoors.  Grew really well UNTIL heavy rain after a long dry
spell.  Down she went.  So I dug what was left (no Clorox) and planted
it INSIDE a high open walled shed, where the only water it got was from
lateral wetting.  It didn't like that too well with no rain for about 3
months after I moved it, but last time I looked, it was still alive.

torturing uncooperative irises is such fun :)
