Deep south iris experiment,
Im mostly a rose grower but I want to add some iris to my garden. I have a couple of beardeds that have bloomed and come back and bloomed over the past two years so I want to give this a more serious look. I understand iris do better with a dormant period. Since I dont have cold weather in the winter I was wondering about perhaps putting the iris on the north side of the house where there is shade for a few months. Now, when I say shade it is all relative. I have a Polish Spirit clematis that is happy as a clam there and blooming its fool head off. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Mari, the crazy miamian
