Donald, Does Sunny Disposition
(Zurbrigg '89) rebloom for you? It is one of the rebloomers that I got from you
that does rebloom here.

The frost to some degree, but not the drought.
Like the naturalized
grape hyacinths and other things, many will simply
skip bloom this
year. I've never seen the muscari do that before,
but not a single
bloom this year. That's drought, though, not
freeze. Some of those
seedlings have bloom stalks, shorter than
usual and not as many
buds. Typical of what I'm seeing. Still
some blasted buds showing
up. A combination of the drought and late
freezes, I expect.

aren't on Iris Talk, are you??
No, but I read the archives daily and
don't miss many posts. I
remember your grasshopper post. I
have mantis here - huge ones -
but they get badly outnumbered by the
hoppers. Maybe that's how
they get so big.
the color changes. Sooner or later I'm bound to
see it in my
seedlings, just hasn't happened yet. Some things like
AB SCOTCH GOLD and RUSTY MAGNIFICENCE are subject to
a lot of variation in
color depending on the weather conditions and
where they are
growing. Most things don't show that much in color,
branching,bud count and height are extremely variable here from
season. This year the bloom sequence is weird as well.
would be wonderful, but if I ever had a seedling that would
do it I
wouldn't likely ever know it.
