Planting iris in pots.
What happens if iris are planted in pots and brought indoors for the winter?
I live in Illinois where frosts are just starting. I have a few dormant
rhizomes that I would like to put in the ground but, I'm wondering how they
would do if I put them in pots instead and kept them all winter indoors.
Could I put them out in April and would they bloom?? Do they need the cold
of winter to bloom next year???
Also..how long can I keep a dormant rhizome? Would it stay until planted
next spring? I don't plan on keeping them until spring but I just wondered?
