Clarence Mahan said to me just a couple of weeks
ago that any iris, given the right conditions, will
rebloom. So, perhaps the reliable rebloomers are more easily
pleased than others, whereas the occasional rebloomers are more
persnickety. -- Griff

Perhaps they are true examples of sporadic
It would seem impossible (to me) for an iris that has no
rebloom genes to bloom other than spring. I've never heard of Silverado
or Skating Party (just examples) blooming off season anywhere.
But then I'm not a geneticist.
Maybe someone has an explanation for iris that rebloom
(bloom off season) but aren't rebloomers! I'd sure like to know what to
call the non-rebloomers that rebloom!
