I'm so sorry about your garden, Judy.  We do get the occasional tornado 
up here, but nothing like you experience down in KS and the rest of 
"tornado alley". We're more likely to get devastatingly forceful straight 
line winds, but even they are thankfully rare.  

I hope you got to enjoy at least some bloom before the storm hit.  How 
horribly disappointing.  Thank goodness irises are tough and will recover 
to bloom again in your garden ... perhaps even gracing you with some late 
season (re)bloom this fall.


USDA zone 3b, AHS zone 4 - northern MN
normal annual precipitation 26-27"
slightly acid clay soil
