Wondering how those irises would have faired if they'd been left on my door 
step to swelter for 12 to 36 hours?  It's not uncommon for delivery personnel 
to just dump the box on my doorstep (no shade-no protection).  Just a note due 
to curiousity.  

Both rain and shine can be a problem.  Wonder if I could train them to leave 
boxes under the shade/carport/work area?  How big would the sign need to be?  <
