Short of digging up the plants, potting them, and putting them in a warm
location for the winter...unfortunately no. BTW, I have done this and
the iris will bloom. Looks great on the Dining room table for
Thanksgiving or Christmas.
In my experience if a bud has formed, and you get a freeze, the bud will
be killed AND in your climate, from what I hear, the bud/stalk should be
cut out to avoid rot.
