Of all the irises I grow, the one that I suspect might do well in
Florida is I. japonica. It likes moist conditions and partial shade.
When it is happy it is a fast grower.
My basis for this recommendation is that it is the only iris I grow that
is not hardy here in Zone 6-7. I grow it as a container specimen and
bring it in before the night temperatures drop below 25 F. According to
Mathew, it's a "try and see" plant. Wyman rates it's hardiness as Zone
8. AHS just says that it is "frost hardy".
