AnotherTB: Peach Spot photo

Peach Spot - snow peach x sib - (unlike many of Shoops intros for me - does better than I expected.)  The happiest stalks for me has had 6 blooms, many with 3 opened blossoms at once.  It never has had good branching for me.  It does have good, steady increase and is a dependable bloomer. 
It has never rebloomed for me - - but maybe if I moved it to another location it may. ( I'm growing it on the north side of the house where there is not much winter sun. I should try that and see.)
I don't think I have a photo of it's best stalk, but I did fine this one.  I tend to think if you crossed it with any other good growing iris - (just make sure it's partner has good branching) - you'll have a pretty decent plant, that would grow and perform well for you.

Margie, good to hear someone else likes this one.  Very pretty, even in
its miserable state here.

Does PEACH SPOT grow and bloom pretty well for you?  I'm curious what a
stalk would look like when it's happy.  In other words, what is its
bloom potential if I can manage to mix its genes with something that
will grow well here.

Has it ever rebloomed for you?  Seems like I remember it being in the
rebloomer checklist as carrying rebloom, but not listed as reblooming.
(The book is buried somewhere in my living room...)
