Bearded Iris in Pots - Winter Care

cairnqueenOctober 5, 2010

I just planted some bearded iris rizomes in pots because I was unable to get the intended raised bed built in time. Should I bring the pots inside during the winter when a freeze is expected? Any other thoughts on how I should care for them until I can get the bed built and transplant them in? I appreciate any help!

Well I would protect them some but they do fine in Michigan and Colorado in the ground. So I would expect they should do fine no matter what you decide to do with them.

I use to bring them up and put them against the side of the house. Last year I forgot to do it and they did fine even in our bad cold spell we had last year...
