I routinely let new shipments of tall bearded irises air dry in a cool
location for up to two weeks. I find I get improved winter hardiness and
less rot the first winter after planting. This is particularly true of
irises that I receive from the Pacific Northwest i.e. Schreiner's
Gardens, Keith Keppel, etc.
