Hi all,

Jane, I'm interested in how hardy Iris lazica might be here.  Also would 
like to know a source for plants or seeds.

I'm testing Iris collettii out in the rock garden this winter, but I've 
kept one plant in a pot in a coldframe, just in case.  I was going to keep 
two potted I. collettii, but one in a pot died in early autumn and I never 
got around to potting up another one.  We had a rather wet autumn, and 
perhaps the rain was too much for it.

How about Iris suaveolens?  Is it cold hardy in this climate (USDA zone 5, 
moist Midwest)?

Best wishes,
