Can iris be grown in southern Florida?

bluemammakatJune 10, 2011

I'm moving from Ohio to Florida and would like to take some of my rhizomes from my tall bearded iris with me. Can anyone tell me if they will survive in the semi tropical climate?

Do a search on Florida for limited discussion. And go to the Florida Gardening forum & seach on iris.

I'm not familiar enuf with Florida geography but remember south of a certain area success was non-existant for TBs. They could grow Louisianas (beardless type).
