louisiana iris

From: Matt Thompson <mthbarco@earthlink.net>

Louisiana iris:
I live in Ohio, zone 6.  I have a pond with a cement stream and various bog 
gardens.  Some of my Louisiana irises are in a 6-inch cement stream 
anchored with stones and roots.  I will be turning off my stream in late 
fall, and I'm not really sure what to do with my Irises.  If let them in 
the stream I am afraid with Ohio's freezing and thawing weather the roots 
won't have any protection.
I can pot them up and put them on my marginal shelf in my pond or I can put 
them in my acidic bog garden.  If I put them in dirt, come early spring 
what will happen to their flowering cycle when I want to put them back in 
my stream?  Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
