Hi Polly,
I have grown siberians for a few years, but this year I moved them to a newly landscaped front yard. We've been out of town for the weekend, and when we got back, it had snowed (again) but this time they are under a LARGE puddle of water and ice... do you think they'll survive?

Yes. They are very hardy.

Depends on how long the ice stays. They don't like ice over the crown, as the crown can't breath. If it's just there for a short time, they will probably be OK. As Boojum says they are very hardy.

Thank you for all the invites everyone!

I'm Bonita Jones Masteller, aka Bonnie. I live in North Carolina's capital, Raleigh. We were zone 7A, but I think we may have gone to zone 8, new system. My first two loves are roses and irises, but I started collecting hostas, too, on DG. I do not do grass- hence we have the absolute worst lawn. Acidic Brick hard red Carolina clay, tall oaks, dense pines (hence a lack of full sun) make growing irises a challenge. Have several hundred Tall Bearded. Have added a few JIs, which struggle, and some species.

In 2007 I toured Dee's area of the world and met many hybridizers. At their suggestions, I joined AIS and ENCIS (Eastern NC iris society). Currently, I'm ENCIS's newsletter editor. While visiting, Dee taught me how to hybridize, so I'm busily trying to get something to sprout. The deer and the squirrels may be winning on that score.

as soon as I figure out how to access my photos with this browse button, I'll add some. Group hug

Bonnie, you can say 'hello' anywhere. As Ibs do well, how about really acessing those. some are shorter & earlier than others so you can have a succesion of bloom.

capital i - instead of little l (L) - got it.

Lucy, Dee can tell you I have a love affair going with IBs. I ordered Eleanor Roosevelt, a woman I much admired in my first order to Suttons. Was delighted not only with it's small size, but its early blooming as well, neither of which I knew about in advance. It's like, "get ready, it's time to begin the show!"

Unfortunately, I've lost ER in 2008 from not replanting it due to illness. And I've not seen it available for sale recently.

the best sun I have is front yard right along the street. Now, there's two rooms up front of spec-X, BBs IBs and SDBs, though the SDBs haven't done much blooming yet. they are the most frequently weeded, and front center stage for me.

Ordered Miss Nellie because my Nana was Nellie, and it has quickly made a gorgeous clump.
There's a great soft blue - not one clue what the name is.
Dee sold me two of my first SDBs - last year got one bloom - our first!
Am tickled with the rebloom on Red Zinger.
Ballycastle did well here, though isn't increasing that well.
I don't much care for the colors in Chartres but it sure likes it here. Dancing Lilacs was cute, but the soft color tends to disappear a bit. Should have a larger clump this year.
Orinoco Flow did so well, I traded it the first year...and now can't find where I put it back! it had better bloom this year so I can ID it.

Sorry about that on the I, needs cross marks top & bottom, doesn't that. Will try & check Superstition catalog for ER tomorrow. If I don't, remind me. Miss Nellie was a great grower, for yrs it was the only BB which did well here. Carries plicata genes you know if you want to use it.
