Can we grow 'Pacific Coast Iris' in middle TN?

irisaddict(6b/7 TN)July 12, 2009

So I was checking out some Japanese iris online (yes, you should bring them to the swap) when I came across a page of the Pacific Coast ones. They were very tempting. Can we grow them here or do they need less humid summers?

I might should not even respond since I really don't know, but, if I had to bet, I'd say they would be fine with a little afternoon shade and some really well draining soil (maybe a raised bed). I grow a number of iris species and have found most to be extremely adaptable.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pacific Coast Native Iris Culture
