Hi Arnold,

Many years ago I grew quite a few spurias in my zone 5 garden, many of them 
Ben Hager's varieties.  However, I gave up on them because they were devoured 
in winter by mice and in summer by iris borers.  I find it hard to believe 
Dave Niswonger's garden can be zone 5.  He is south of St. Louis, which is 
south of Cleveland and is next to the Mississippi River.  His irises bloom 
much earlier in the spring than ours.
