CULT: Arilbred iris (was Re: AB: Bagdad's Folly)

Hi Margie and all,

That is a wonderful looking iris!

I have always been told that the arilbreds do not survive up here in the 
frozen north (Canadian Prairies).  Someone said that 1/4 breds MAY survive 
but I have never met anyone who has actually tried it in my area.  Does 
anyone know the zone limit on these babies (full, half, one-quarter 
breds)?  They are just wonderful looking.

I'm trying Japanese and Louisiana this year for the first time but won't be 
leaving them outside for the winter.  My plant storage area is going to be 
really full this fall.  :)

Thanks for any information.

BJ in SW MB, Canadian Prairies, CDN zone 2b, USDA 3
