"I can speak to the quality of rhizomes from Riverview Iris Gardens"

I'm glad to see this comment, Arnold.  I used to live in the county 
next north of Riverview and had similar soils, water, climate.  It 
spoiled me!  Bearded iris are in hog-heaven with limey, desert soils, 
plentiful high-quality irrigation water, dry air, intense sun from 
Easter to Thanksgiving---absolutely ideal growing conditions.

If I could just take a pair of pruning shears to the calender and 
remove everything after Christmas and before Palm Sunday, I'd have 
the world's second most perfect climate for bearded irises--San Jose 
to Monterrey, CA takes first prize, I suspect.
