For those of you trying thinking of growing LA "up North", the latest SLI 
Newsletter contains and article by Ida Godfrey about growing LA in AIS 
Region 1 (Northern New England).  She only lists one cultivar, you 
guessed it, BLACK GAMECOCK.  Her culture conditions don't sound too 
different from those anywhere else.  She says a quick change in the 
weather prevented her from mulching last fall, but her LAs survived with 
a good snow cover.  She mentions 4 others in the region growing LAs with 
"marvelous displays" and states "growing Louisiana irises isn't really as 
hard as you (and I) thought".
