Re: Zones and Temps

I'm not a knowledgeable one to expound on this subject.  Someone  in your 
area may be able to.  But in my not-so-humble-0pinion, I'd say you were close 
to my zone -- sort of 6/7 since you are nearly a mile high in the mountains.  
Down on the flats in SanDiego, it is probably 9 - don't I remember palm trees 
there?  And I THINK (too troublesome to go to italics)  SUNSET  zones are for 
sunshine?  Help, someone!  I find weather an interesting subject -- in my 
reincarnation I think I'll be a weatherman!
What you need is a CHECKLIST for REBLOOMING IRISES.  That is our "bible" and 
it gives the zones, states, and countries where various irises have been 
reported to rebloom -- listing over 2200 irises.  It costs $10.00 plus 
shipping(3.00 - priority mail) and send the check to Charlie Brown,3114 S. FM 
131, Denison, TX 75020  and he will send you a copy poste haste and you'll 
love it!  He's the Pres. and Membership Ch'man of the Reblooming Iris 
Society.   And with that in hand, you will be able to select irises that may 
rebloom for you.  So much is involved, really.  Not just temperature, but  
sun, rain, soil, care, etc.  TYo compensate for irradic (sp? that doesn't 
look right) rainfall, you can use soaker hoses  because rebloomers tke more 
fertilizer and water than regular irises.  Good luck! Rosalie nr 
Baltimore,USA  zone 7 (temp about 18today, maybe going to 28)
