Your spuria iris are beautiful and look very healthy.  Could you tell us 
more about their culture, please?  I ordered some this year and really 
need more information on them as I have only grown one spuria in the 
past.  It loved the sandy loam and arid climate with cold, windy winters 
in USDA zone 5 where it grew on a bank which got very little water and 
had excellent drainage. It was an old iris and extremely hardy.  The new 
ones will be more recent hybrids and I suspect they will be a bit more 
finicky about their environment.  I am currently still in arid USDA zone 
5 but our soil here is less sandy and we get more snow cover in winter 
than we did 104 miles north of here where I grew my one and only spuria. 
 Any help you can give me (and others too I suspect) would be greatly
