***thanks for all the information, I'm glad to know that Irises, unlike roses,
have the same names everywhere.  However, I am a bit confused about your
statement that it is now too late to plant Irises in most of the USA - I
assume my zone 5 IL is included in your statement?  It is my assumption that
*now* is the time to plant dormant Iris rizomes.  The nursery where I purchase
my two is a very good one and they only offer plants when the time is right.
I had assumed that by planting them now, the roots will have some time to get
established be for ole man winter hits?  After the first couple of heavy
frosts, I plan to mulch them heavily with shredded pine bark mulch and remove
it in the Spring.  Am I going about this all wrong?
