I have found most bearded iris to be very forgiving.  In fact, a historical
(still not identified, but must be because my grandmother brought it from
Michigan to California in the early 50's) was accidently packed in a box
with other things after my grandmother passed on and was not discovered
until two years later.  The iris is growing quite nicely in my mom's beds
right now.
