Hi! My name is Mary and I live in Alaska so my gardening problems are probably similar to ND, WI, MN or Canada. Hi Todd. I am trying to grow bearded iris but it is tough duty. This will be my fourth spring trying. Have lost so many to rot. I also got some ensata's last summer and according to Polly have planted them all wrong. so if they survive I will make a new bed that is more hospitable to their needs. My first love is peonies however. As far as I know I have the only ones here that stay in the ground and bloom (Japanese and Chinese Trees). When I am on my regular PC, where my garden database is I can post a few of my small successes with Iris. Hope springs eternal. And like Jon, half the fun is to push the zone. I have helleborus, another not to be seen (or at least I haven't heard of anyone here growing them.). Took three years to find just the right spot. Japanese ferns (Painted) still elude me.

Thanks to Polly for all her advice. I will give it my best.
