Hi Jane - welcome to the group. Not a lot of participation here lately, since most everybody has migrated to Facebook, but a few of us are still here trying to help.

The good news is that there apparently are some varieties of irises that do ok in Florida. The bad news is that you are so far south, it will take some hunting to find varieties that you can grow there. Beverly Sills can be fussy some places even farther north, so that's probably not going to be one you can get to live and bloom for you.

You might try searching the archived messages for florida and see if you get some ideas there.

I hate to discourage you, but the heat, humidity and high rainfall are too much for most varieties that were bred and selected for introduction in places where the climate is drier in summer and colder in winter. Next spring, I suggest you drive around and look for irises in bloom in your area, then, if you find any, introduce yourself to the owners ;-)

Good luck!
