Thanks for that great info Betty!  I didn't expect the bloom because it was so close to the time of separation, but I am really glad to hear that I probably need not worry about those.  I have been blessed it seems, since I haven't had that happen.  I shall check the archives for more info!  Have a great day!

<<Can anyone tell me what causes the phenomenon of blooming out!  I separated and replanted one of my rebloomers last year.  Two of the rhizomes bloomed in the fall!  Last thing I expected after separating them and I wondered if that had happened to them.  I have not ever experienced that to my knowledge.  If those 2 rhizomes bloomed out in the fall, will they die this spring?  >>
Blooming in the fall is not an indication of "bloom out!"  (If that is the question)  Fall bloom after transplanting is not uncommon and should not be seen as a problem.   
"Bloom out" is when a rhizome blooms on all available fans (season doesn't matter) and does NOT produce increase.  Some rhizomes are just teasing and will put up increase during the next season or after a good soaking rain.  Others simply will not produce more rhizomes no matter what you do.  (I've no idea what causes it, specifically).
You can probably find a lot on the subject in the iris-talk archives.  It's always the favorites that "bloom out!"  For me it was Orange Star & a killer seedling in the early years, and then Knoble Dragon in 2004/2005!!  There have been others but these are the ones that HURT! 
If you don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
