	When I lived in Texas, I had no problems whatsoever with Blyth
irises and when I moved to MS, I brought them with me.  The problem in the
South and in my MS garden is that they start  an early growth cycle  in
late winter or early spring only to be zapped by a cold snap in March.
Very few Blyth irises have bloomed well here and rarely reach registered
height.  The only one I can recommend without hesitation is TOUCH OF
BRONZE.  Nothing keeps it from blooming.
