Just came in from checking the iris beds, and ,considering the "amount" of winter that Illinois had this year, I think things look pretty good! A lot of the iris I planted last year were "late " getting in the ground, and really didn't have time to put down roots, and get any "new growth" before freeze-up, but I only see 3 that are "goners", and only about 6 that are "iffy", so I'm pretty happy! The downside is that one of the "goners" is somewhat of a hard iris to find, in fact, I had ordered it from a place in the Netherlands because that was the only source I could find. And, as those kind of shipments go, it was VERY late in the year when I got it, and it didn't show even a TRACE of green ! So, I guess, I expected failure on this one ! Shrug! . Most of the "iffy" plants are showing just a tiny green leaf, and are still solid to the touch, so I'm hopeful !So, how did yours make it through the winter...or are they still under the snow ?!,,,,Arlyn
