    Plant them now, and plant deep, the first ones I planted tended to flower horizontal by the Spring.!

    Is it too late to plant iris corms in November?

    No, it's not too late,  but it would have been better to start a thread with an appropriate title, as this one was about alliums, and you may not have got suitable advice  :)

    When you say corms though - what kind of Irises are they? Is it the reticulata types you have rather than the rhizomes that bigger Irises have?
    If the former, it may mean flowering time will be slightly delayed, but it's always better to plant them up, rather than leaving them to get dried out, or to decay/rot.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
