RE: dutch iris: hardy?

I am planting Dutch Iris for the first time here in Southern maine.. 6-8 varieties, 20+ bulbs of each variety. From the research I've done, they sread about as quickly as Bearded Iris, so should be dug and divided every few years to thin the m out.

Tat works for me....I can keep expanding my flower gardens with minimal $$$, simply by dividing and replanting various peennials and bulbs. yippee!

RE: dutch iris: hardy?

well let me know how they perform, that is, spring 2009. my quebec books say they are not hardy here. so in the end i haven't tried them....
