Hi Mike- I grow Mountain Sunrise here in MO and had
rebloom on it in 2008 . While cleaning the garden on 3/1/10 I found a
large firm bloom stalk about 2 inches tall on Tropical Delight-must have over
looked in November, I am sure it has been to cold for a new stalk to be forming
. attached is Mtn. Sunrise and Fall
Enterprise...just out of curiosity does anyone on this
list have either or both of these iris?
And all we get is new snow falling today - at least the reticulatas are
starting to open.
You are getting lots of gorgeous (to me)
patterns now, Mike. Good job.
Do you happen to have photos of parents of
both you could post?
Rather than ask for an explanation of the genetics
<couple of interesting (to me) seedlings blooming
right now. both sent
up stalks last Oct. that were frozen out. these
show some cold damage
but were still able to open OK. Nice breeding
additions to our
reblooming stock, i can see some potential in
first one is out Mtn. Sunrise lines, second is out of Fall
