Re: Need identification for this old rebloomer.

I am sorry to say that I just called Randy and he says that he doesn't have any Sky Queen in his garden.  He has been hit hard by the drought as well and says that he is going to have to rebuild his whole garden again.  I will see what I can do to find some for you.  I'll let you know if I succeed.  I have always loved it because it normally does so well and blooms so often.

Thanks Jan. I am delighted to just know it is still around. Look forward to word from Randy Squires. I am a HIPS member and if he has it I will let our Commercial Sources person know. We are always excited when a historic iris that we didn't know a commercial source for has one identified.

Hope the terrible drought starts to end very soon. It is very disheartening for people I am sure.

Hi Shaub,
We had such a drought year that none of my irises are multiplying or I would offer you one of mine.  I will check with our local commercial iris garden, Randy Squires, and see if he grows it.  I am not sure. 
I gave it to a friend of mine in Orange Country, CA several years ago.  She has divided it and planted it a variety of places in her yard.  I visit her once a month and it is always in bloom or just finishing a bloom.  It is amazing.  I would term it an 'ever bloomer' in So. Cal.

Sky Queen! Oooo ... I've been looking that one big time. (I'm a historics nut.) Do you know a commercial source? None of the main historics carriers have it.

Thanks, Shaub

I suggest trying Sky Queen.  It reblooms here in Southern California off and on all year.  Because we have such a mild climate I have seen it in bloom in every month of the year.  Here are a couple of photos.

Hi All:
A club member brought this iris to the meeting Sunday.  She was hoping someone can identify it.  It is a reliable rebloomer in southern NM.  Any suggestions?
