Thanks Betsy.  I never knew you could get that many petals.  Does this only
happen in Japanese Irises ?

As for the conditions, if they can stand the Zone 3 winter, acid soil and 
can be provided.  I have only seen them listed as being hardy to Zone 4.

SE Manitoba
Zone 3

>Catherine:  I'm in Zone 7.
