Dear All,
Hoping an iris grower could help me: I've received some seeds of Iris colchesterensis from Plant World Seeds.  Their planting instructions seem rather general: 
"Sow at anytime and cover thinly with compost or grit in gentle heat or a warm bright sot outside.  Grow on seedlings in 3 inch pots.  Plant out in a well prepared bed."
Does this species require a chilling period and extra moisture?  I seem to recall that it is very dependent on moist conditions, much like Louisiana iris.  Please give your advice -
