Similar forecast here ! I was suprised to see the iris doing as well as they are ,after our storm! I sorta' "shook ' the water from the blooms, and most are standing up again, without staking. I was complaining about this being a "short stalk" year, but I ain't now ! Only had to stake 2-3, but I'm not putting the stakes away yet! I'm taking these storms as a sign that I need to plant more medians!( as if I need an excuse !). I did notice that when an iris was laying down, it was a newer, larger, more ruffled cultivar. All the old ones seem to have stood it very well(another reason to plant more historics, as if I need one !) But I suppose to be fair in my judgement, I should plant some more of the newer "fancier' types, to give them a fair shake.(Hmmm...Plant 'em ALL, and let the strong survive !!)....Arlyn
