Hello Arizona gardeners,
There's a post on the American Iris Society Blog about Arizona iris hybridizer Margie Valenzuela, who creates irises that can stand up to your extreme temps. If you are interested, here's the link.

RE: Irises in Arizona

Thanks for posting this. I've tried the link from home and work a few times but keep getting an error. I'll try again though, thanks for posting it!

I grow a ton bearded iris here and have great success, they're surprisingly durable in this climate. There used to be several nice commercial bearded iris farms in the Phoenix metro before they got sold to developers. It's neat that someone is working to develop more choices for us. Thanks again! Happy gardening!
