RE: December reblooming report

I was intrigued by Elena's report as I think the temparature range on 
Central/Southern Cal coastline is very similar to Sydney's (coastal only). 
Of course we get about 48" of rain a year and February is the very humid 
(about 75% r.h) but our coldest night would be tewo or thee nights in 
june/july of 4 degrees c. Winter days average about 15 to 19 degrees c. At 
present, nearing January the temp. at night is 18 degrees c and daytime 
between 24 to 32 c.

I wonder if some irises rebloom ONLY in these climates rather than the more 
Typical TB (?) cooler climates?

Hi everybody!

In spite of the rains every two or three days, FENSTERWALD (IB) and APRICOT
FROSTY (BB) have being blooming beautifully since the end of Nov.
Today, CHATTER (Ghio, 93) opened. Such grace!  CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS has a
nice stalk already a foot and 1/2 tall (it will probably bloom for
Christmas), and MIND READER (Keppel 94) and GENE MACHINE are starting to
shoot one.
MIND READER is a year and a half old plant and this will be  the first
blooming. Does anybody know if it is considered a rebloomer?
Happy Holidays to all of you.

Elena Laborde in Santa Cruz, CA (central coast), were the weather is
generally so  good one feels guilty to mention it!
