Thanks Anita and Char. I live in north central Texas and there is not an average temperature here. We often go from 30F to 80F and back again in a matter of hours. I don't think it will get cold enough to do any real damage to the iris if they can get a few roots started. I guess I should pot them up and leave them in my greenhouse (unheated) until they start growing. Thanks again, Pearl

Hi Pearl
We have had snow, ice and the usual sub freezing winds and rain.  But iris sent late are doing fine in pots in my mud room.  Just don't over water and they should do fine.  I also think they would probably be fine until spring, but either way you are looking at a delay in bloom

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
