TB iris, spurias, and arils/arilbreds do not need much winter.

That much said, I (in Los Angeles) had several regular bloomers
which did not make it this year. We had a mixture of warm/cool/
warm this winter which was odder than usual.

Leave them in the ground in the summer, and water in windy evenings,
to reduce/eliminate rhizomes baking while wet.

My parents (in Sedona AZ) also had no bloom this year.
