Jane, I agree the 'Beverly Sills' is beautiful, but in your climate there are many other varieties of iris that will do well. Google "Louisiana iris" or "water-loving iris" and you'll discover that Florida can grow iris other than tall bearded. You might try the American Iris Society website for the best in information about irises, www.irises.org.
Good luck,

The  plant  will bloom on  budset  from garden of origin. After that
plant will die a slow death as you don't have enough of a cool period
for it to survive long term in your climate.

Hi:  I am a 3 year resident of Florida (Venice, west coast)(zone 9b) and
trying to learn how to garden down here.  Last fall I planted (which I
never had before) some tall bearded iris (Beverly Sills reblooming) and
de Oro day lilies.  They have all come up and most have flowered
beautifully -
but . . .

1)  the leaves are now turning yellow from the tips back down to
the bulb - can't get answers from local master gardener site ... what
do I
need to do to fix this?

2)  there were some critters (bugs/beetle types) in a
few of the flower pockets (don't know what they are called) and I
scooped them
out and squished them (ugh!) - but I haven't seen any since.

We are in our
rainy season now and all seem to be ok except for the yellowing of the
I would appreciate any help.  The Beverly Sills flowers are gorgeous!

for being there for me.
