8. Thank you for the tips! I will go & place them on newspapers to dry right now.

I just drained the buckets they're in of water, but i'm thinking laying them out is best. I've never planted iris before but i find the rhizomes & leaves very similar to daylilies, which is just as hardy & won't die in zone 8b heat.
My neighbor has had her flowerbed edging for years and they multiple like crazy. I should have enough to do a border for an extended tree ring in my front yard, enough for several rows about 3" deep. Yes like you i'm excited once they do come in next year, though my neighbor said hers actually came in the first year she planted them.
