Perhaps, I believe that parts of England can have rainfall as low as 10
inches per year in a dry year.
The rainfall in the British Isles is very unpredictable, and very varied,
-as  I often try to explain.
 Sometimes I send seed of some unguicularis to the British Iris Society
seed exchange, -Walter Butt (self pollinated) has been among them a few
As I have missed the deadline for the BIS seed exchange this year, I may
send some to the PBS if I managed to save any...and can find them.
