<<It should rebloom in colder climates if it can handle the winters.>>
Chuck, could you elaborate on this?  What factors, currently known, lead you to believe that this iris should rebloom in colder climates? 
As stated before, I really like this one.  Based on what I know about the iris now, I couldn't make a definitive guess as to it's ability to bloom in Zone 6.

(Posting directly on yahoo group site. Sent message twice yesterday, but they didn't go through to group.)

I do like the colouring on this. the white around beard adds interest to flower. With such a long bloom time, and it being a summer rebloomer certianly makes it worthy of introduction.

As to possible downsides, it may not do well in colder climates, but that would depend on parentage and of course trials in colder areas. It should rebloom in colder climates if it can handle the winters.

> would appreciate feedback on this seedling. took the picture early this morning so there wasn't much light, it is slightly brighter in more direct sun. good form and solid rebloom (5 months here) 9 to 13 buds and a good increaser. is intro quality? or is it too bland, does the rim need to have more color and definition or does it "work" the way it is? thanks in advance
