Really good news, that is, isn't it
Yes, but in the nearly
twenty years that I have grown Skating Party, it has only rebloomed once, and
its seedlings were not something I want to see again. Of course, I crossed it
with a pink, not knowing that it is a dominate white. I wonder what would
happen if it were crossed with a good white rebloomer like my Cloud
Reflection? Just a thought.

1/4 Sapphire hills , 3/8 Cup Race ,and 2/8 High Sierra
Are there any REbloom
carriers there ?>>
to the Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris, Cup Race is reported to rebloom
thought I'd heard of all the older irises that had rebloomed, but I missed
this one! I'm always delighted to add another beauty to my list of
rebloomers. Just in time to save a huge planting of SP that is slated for
elimination! Well, part of it anyway.
interesting aside . . . Silverado and Skating Party and listed one after the
other when you look up Carriage Trade in the online register. I'd hoped
for rebloom from Silverado due to the fact that it also lists Navy Strut in
it's parentage, another iris listed to rebloom in CA.
children of Silverado that rebloom but nothing from the first generation.
