 Farron Campbell, I'm soaking them 3 Months, then taking off the shell, 
 potting the seeds, covering the pot with Saran wrap punched with holes. 
 I'm told they'll sprout in 10 Days, We'll see.

In a box somewhere, I've 'bee pod' seed (many) saved from both Spuria and 
Louisiana irises.  This sounds like an interesting winter project, and a way 
to grow some of each that will do well here by saving the strongest of each 
experiment.  Never mind the beauty part.  This would be for fun and amusement 
rather than introduction.  

Other place--I grew awesome Spurias and Louisianas by giving them what they 
needed.  La on the lowest spot in the yard where the water from over an acre 
drained down and the Spurias on a ridge.  Loved both.  Louisiana iris have 
such grace.  Down side is that it was always too hot to enjoy much of 
anything outside by the time either blooms.  

Betty in BG KY.  Got an inch of slow rain but needing more.
