For the last month or so I have been putting up all my plants for a long Maryland winter. We've had several days with 20 deg F and a little snow here and there. But the past week the weather has been good (60 to low 70s) and then I noticed my Dutch Iris "Miss Saigon" have suddenly popped and they almost look like they want to flower again (but I doubt it). I also saw some of my Hosta also are showing their tiny green thorns just like if it were late March or early April. What is going on? Can anyone tell me what to expect from the early winter growth of these dutch irises. Should I take them inside of my greenhouse to further protect them. Not much I can do with the Hosta's premature growth. Many of my bearded irises are showing more green then I would expect this time of year. Very unusual start to winter here in Southern Maryland. Thanks.
