TB: multiple bloom per rhizome


Last year, Gary Sides asked for reports on irises that manage to bloom
on increases in addition to the terminal, which is often damaged here in
Tennessee by late winter/early spring hard freezes.  The stalks on side
fans are a bit later and seem to avoid more of the damage that hits so
many of the terminal fans of early & midseason bloomers.

I don't know if you are still reading Gary, but here are a few that are
blooming on side fans on 1st year rhizomes from Schreiners:
AVALON SUNSET
BOLD FASHION
MARIAH
SO FINE

Two that bloomed on side fans last year (also on 1st year rhizomes from
Schreiners) are
ART DECO
SEAKIST

Both sets of plants were ordered the last week or so of their season
(late September), planted in October, and <covered with fabric plant bed
covers> all winter.

Also on
LOVES THE SUN, an older, lovely Blyth iris (yellow 'umbrata') that lost
its terminal, but has a huge healthy stalk coming along on a side fan.
I sure do want to get some babies from this one...
