RE: Tender growth vs cold......

In response to your below plea, I'd say don't worry too much.  Those new 
leaves are a sign that you have healthy root growth going on, and even if the 
leaves get zapped, the rhizomes should be okay, and the roots will take the 
hint and slow down for the winter.  If you're watering them now, you might 
want to taper off to make them go further dormant.  And then just sit back and 
wait for the snow!

Barb, in Santa Fe, where the mountains are dusted in white and all my tender 
stuff is dusted in black.  Does this mean I can stop planting now, Mom?

Help!  We have had unseasonably warm temperatures here in Wis for the past
two to three weeks.  I mean 20-25 degrees above normal for this time of year.
 Today, I noticed that 75% of the new rizomes I planted about a month ago
have new growth.  Unfortunately, the warm spell is about to end and upper
30's are being predicted within the next 2-3 days.  First frost is soon to
follow.  What kind of damage is this going to do to the new rizomes?  Is
there anything I can do to help?  Spring was a month late, now fall is the
same, go figure.

Iris in Milw. where last year we had snow on Oct. 20.
PS:  I have about 48 hours to fix this if there is a fix.  Please help.
