Thanks a lot Linda!
this is a great map!
I live in the small green bit close to Germany, so
i'm in zone 7, as i suspected, but i was not really sure.
Closer to the sea, it's a bit milder, especially
when it freezes.
Amazingly, north and south irises manage well here.
The ones that die are the ones that can't stand the
humidity....and i don't blame them...

Probably more like Oregon, but a lot
