WL is a very tender iris in North MS. I had brought it with me in
my move from TX and had seedlings out of it. Both WL and its progeny were
victims of spring cold snaps. I do not know how WL might do farther south
in MS. I would steer clear of any variety marked E, VE, and VVE for fear
it would be cold sensitive. This also is the problem with some of the
early blooming Blyth things, which have previously been discussed here.
WL is gawjus in the right climate!
