Bought several irises from Schreiner's last year and was unable to plant them. Just located the box. They are dried out. Will they revive if I plant them?

Maybe. Plant them and see what happens.

Some folks have had success by soaking them for a few hours in a bucket of water. Then plant and cross your fingers.

mizgwen ~ Welcome! to the Iris Forum!

It would probably be good to soak the roots overnite in water. If you have some Superthrive on hand, add a couple of drops.
