Irises are wonderful garden plants. You can certainly find some that will grow for you, if you just give them light. Some grow in deserts, some in swamps, some in the cold far north, and many in temperate climates. Iris means rainbow, and that's because irises come in so many colors: blues and purples, whites and yellows, pinks and oranges, browns and reds, and even blacks.
