Bearded Iris and Beardless Iris both do well in temperate climates. Iris require a period of winter dormancy to ensure good bloom in the spring. For this reason we do not recommend planting Iris in southern states, such as Hawaii, Florida and in Puerto Rico.We DO NOT ship IRIS to these locations, because we cannot guarantee their success in these locations. As a general guideline, we do not guarantee our Iris in those areas of Florida with ZIP codes beginning with 328-- (Orlando and south). We DO ship catalogs, books and fertilizer to those locations, however. Please contact us if you have further questions.
