|in the sun for a short time (a day or two) to dry any leftover soil around the rhizome. Then to a cool dry space until ready to plant.|
If you have significant soil around the rhizomes, then you need to knock it off.

|Welcome; great advice so far and always available here! |
Central east TN was always muggy also, but not quite as hot. Irises are very forgiving, at least the bearded ones.
