It does give the coldest reported zone.  Some of the newer ones haven't been around long enough for zones other than their home zone to have been reported. 

<<as well as the coldest reported zone.>>
How would we get the time of rebloom on all those irises carried over from the 1998 Checklist?  <vbg>  

My rebloom-I'm going to hate losing so many stalks! 

I tried to protect three new seedlings.  There were sixty-five seedlings in this batch, and I'm not sure if I just didn't notice them in the spring or if they failed to bloom.  I'd marked 4 of my favorites and these were not among that group.  I put a gallon jug of hot water on the wind side of the stalks and then covered the whole mess with a sheet.  I'd meant to dig those seedlings and reclaim the bed!  Guess it's a good thing I noticed the stalks before I pitched them!  At least, I hope it was a good thing. 

Then, I cut stalks on three more to harvest the pollen. 

1625-01re (picture) gave rebloom seedlings from three different crosses.  (Star Gate child that blooms in early August.)  I've posted two from the Total Recall cross and one from 1620-04 (Chinese New Year x Theme Master).  The third one is crossed by 1701-01Re which is a red seedling involving Silverado, Latin Lady, Theme Master, & Tara's Choice.  It's one of the cut stalks and if it blooms inside, I'll post this one, too.  


Forgot to cut stalks of Returning Chameleon.

here also, frost has hit.
So many stalks in the garden still to open ...i think it will be in vain this year...
that's why we must create more early rebloomers for our areas.
the late ones are OK for the milder climates, but it is not a pleasant sight to see frozen buds!
i wish the rebloomer's data base would give the time of rebloom, as well as the coldest reported zone.
so , depending on where you live, you would know before hand (and before seeing them wasted) the ones best fit for your garden.
Hope your sdlg gets many growth, Linda,  so you can quicly share !!!

I'm amazed to see some of the IMM kids and grandkids opening nearly
undamaged blooms after 4 or 5 nights of frost. This one is from a
yellow cycle rebloomer seedling: (IMM x CSONG) X MATRIX. Heavy
substance, tho petals thin out to transparent at the rims. Doesn't show
very well in the photo, but it had a faint blue wash on the falls when
it first opened. No sign of plicata veining - looks like regular
non-plic haft marks. The photo looks yellowish, but it's white, no
yellow tint visible.
