I have a question about planting some very dry iris rhizomes. My neighbor consistently buys plants and "never gets around to planting them". About 6 months after they should have been planted, she finally decides she isn't ever going to get them planted and gives them to me.

They will grow but it usually takes about two years to get blooms from them. My question: Would it be better to plant them now or wait until spring? We have had one ice storm that lasted about 3 days. Since then it has been very warm , 60-80. We will probably have a few more cold fronts but nothing ever lasts more than a few days. Thanks for any advise.  Pearl
