If it bloomed for 6 months, then it started reblooming in June. thus it is a summer rebloomer. The summer rebloomers, such as Immortality and Queendorathy rebloom here. If it has been reblooming since June, it obviously is a strong grower so would have plant maturity to enable cold climate maturity during summer when we get temperature triggers.

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.

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
