Always thought rebloom was a combination of extraordinary vigor with some
'flaw' in the mechanism that is still evolving to make iris only bloom during
the season most conducive to producing viable seed.

Perhaps the 'flaw' is overwhelmed by another gene in the carrier that gets
lost in the next generation.  Maybe it matches up with the 'flaw' in whatever
it's crossed with.  Maybe just a cumulative (dosage) effect.

There must be many varieties with a weak tendency to rebloom that never really
get the chance because they aren't given the water and nutrients they need,
when they need them.

Where did Again And Again get overlapping hafts?  Neither Anxious nor Renown
has them.

Or Space Age appendages from non-SA parents?

Ain't it fun?
