I think the last week freezing is the last week of February or first week of March.  Thanks again!

  You do realize that this Brazilian Neomarica caerulea is not very  
  hardy?  The A-Z Encyclopedia of Cultivated Plants says 50F/10C  
  minimum?!?!  That's ridiculous.  In Pasadena it has survived  
  temperatures as low as 18F for short periods (overnight).  But from  
  what I am hearing on weather reports from your area, I think this  
  would not be a good time to send it to you.  What is the normal last  
  frost date for you?  My guess is that it would be better to send it  
  to you in May, and by then it would run less risk of freezing in  
  transit.  Why don't you send me an email about that time and remind  
  me of my promise.  If this won't work for you, please let me know.
