On November the 8th I was out cleaning up for
winter in our garden and had a tragic accident with an iris we had been waiting
to see blossom for weeks:
As I had been patiently waiting to make my
contribution to the above topic, this was indeed a major blow.
However, I took the main stem into the house and
dropped it in water to see if it would still give us a bloom and it
Up to this point the only rebloomer that performed
for us in fall had been Immortality on a yearly basis, around Halloween.
This year we split the plant up and didn't get fall bloom, so now we hold our
breath again, giving the individual plants time to settle in.
As Sunshine and Snow was taking so very long to
open the bud, we think that it wouldn't have blossomed if left out in the colder
weather. It is nice to know that if we are going below freezing
temperatures where the blossoms won't survive, I can rescue the scapes by
bringing them indoors, although the point was to have a garden display.
For us, Immortality will bloom both spring and
fall, but our experience with Sunshine and Snow is the same as Jean's below
where it didn't bloom earlier in the year. Interesting.
