Re: MTB List Continued

In years with unseasonable frosts after the MTBs have buds showing color, are
they more, less, or the same resistance to cold injury as tetraploid tall
bearded iris?

Do the early blooming ones wait for the weather to settle, or do they bloom
the same date each year, regardless of the weather?
