Re: HYB:REB:Repeat

I have  observed a pattern of bloom such as you describe ontwo TB cultivars 
in recent  years, ROMANTIC EVENING (Ghio, '96) and CHILO(Nebeker, '98). In both 
cases  there was one stalk that emerged shortly after the end of the main 
season  bloom and came into bloom two to four later. 

Jeff, I really appreciate your response.  I've had other 'oncers'  repeat but 
was not smart enough to make notes, at the time.    
Repeat bloom is a recognized form of rebloom.  
I'm not schooled enough in genetics to answer as to stress factors vs  
rebloom trait in the irises you noted.  Perhaps it only speaks to  possibilities.  
I'm of the opinion that Mother Nature can't trick irises  into doing anything 
they are not genetically capable of doing.  
Anyone else???  Please and thank you!!!
