Hi,
I have a suggestion for a late bloomer that is
really beautiful and reliable.  Donna Louise by
Francis Rogers is one of the last to bloom in my
garden and it is beautiful!

Hi, Betty,

I'm not a pollen dauber, but still wanted to
second your suggestion. I 
would love to see lots of hybridizers having as
one of their goals 
producing irises that extend the blooming season.
Lots of potential 
there, it seems to me.

As a grower, I try to achieve that effect, of
course, by trying 
different classes - getting a little earlier start
with the medians and 
trying some of the other species and beardless
types. But it is a thrill 
when the TBs give me the occasional extra bloom
beyond my "normal" bloom 
season.

Bill Wells (in southern MO where, with a couple of
fair recent rains, 
the daylilies are making a valiant effort to
rebound after the 
devastating heat and lack of moisture so far this
year)
