> Deb  --  Responding to Linda Mann's request on your behalf:  I'm attaching
a
> schema to show how an iris should be planted.  (1) Dig a good, deep hole
and
> make a mound of soft earth in the center; (2) place the rhizome (like a
> tuber with roots) on top of the mound, spreading the roots out and down;
(3)
> fill the hole, covering the rhizome with about 1/2 inch of dirt and press
> down firmly all around, leaving the rhizome near enough to the surface
that,
> when you water it in, the watering process will just about expose the
> surface of the rhizome to the air.  This should work in your climate.  --
