I've found I. missouriensis germination to be very variable, possibly
depending on where the seed's from and maybe how mature it is. I once
brought two seeds home from a mountain meadow (the only seeds I could find),
and I now have two five-year-old clumps (those were planted in the ground
along with that year's crop of bearded iris seeds). But so far seeds from
those clumps have not grown here. I have gotten up to around 60% on some
SIGNA seeds from Colorado using the refrigerator technique. This year I've
been trying the leave-it-in-pots-outside-over-the-winter trick, but it's
still too early to tell if anything is going to make it. I hope so--it's
easier to keep track of the little seedlings in pots.

last snowfall today.
