Hi Anner,

I'm located in the midwest with the up & down temps in the winter. This is 
very hard on iris especially those acquired from California since at the 
first warmup we get they want to start growing so therefore we have to mulch 
these to try and keep them dormant. My garden is located on a hillside I have 
made beds with railroad ties, landscape timbers and now using the new 
landscape blocks. 

iris that do well for me are as follows: 
TB's: Abbey Road, Acoma, Boogie Woogie, Jurassic Park, Joyce Terry, Dusky 
America's Cup, Tabasco, Lion's Share, Stairway To Heaven, Alice Goodman, 
Fringe Benefits, Oktoberfest, Pink Quartz, April In Paris, Wabash, Orange 
Slices, & Violet Dawson.

BB's: Cranapple and Little Mary Sunshine 

IB's: Rare Edition, Levity, Ask Alma, Maui Moonlight, Dark Waters, Prince Of 
Burgundy, Country Dance, Slam Dunk and Let's Elope
Constant Companion as an IB RE

SDB's: Lilac And Lavender, Pele, Jewel Baby RE, Golden Ruby, Mary's Lamb, 
Quicken, Pumpin Iron, Wake Up, Smart, Serenity Prayer, Priviledged Character, 
Gemstar, Orange Tiger, Toon Town, Dot Com, Yellow Girl, Tarheel Elf, Quote, 
Plum Ripples, Wildcat Pajama's and Cubby Cheeks.

MTB's: I'm not going to mention names here because all have done well for me. 
They all bloom consistantly year after year.
