War Chief Bearded Iris

I planted some War Chief bearded irises today.   They will bloom with a deep rust/red color.   I should have some of these for sale next fall a I am planting my parent stock today.
They were nice healthy rhizomes and since it doesn't freeze here in Southern California, they will grow all winter.   I didn't plant them in one of my raised beds because there are full.   I amended the soil heavily with compost and added bone meal.
