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.
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.
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.
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.
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
