RE: OT: Cut flowers for cemetery

Hi George,
Why don't you go for Rebloomers in each size?  You would then have a much
longer blooming season with limited care.

Try Winterberry on line.

Where do you live?

Subject: [iris] OT: Cut flowers for cemetery


Looking for some advice on cut flowers for cemetery vases.  I just 
took over the only blooming thing in the house, which was a big 
beautiful calla lily bloom, grown in a pot inside.  Might be frozen 
mush after a couple nights around 20 degrees here in zone 6, but 
giving it a try.  If that's the case, need a steady supply of stuff to cut.

Last fall after the monument was installed, I took over some dahlias, 
a calla lily, and naturally an iris rebloomer that was doing its 
thing.  Would like to have more diversification, rather than trying 
to pamper calla lilies year round.  Have any of you tried potted 
rebloomers indoors, and if so, with what results?  I have in my 
garden maybe half a dozen rebloomers for this zone, including 
Immortality that I can recall right off the top.  I could grab a 
rhizome from one of them at the appropriate time and pot it.  Would I 
be better going with something smaller than a TB, and if so, what 
variety to accomplish the same thing?

Thinking outside the box, any other ideas?  I refuse to go with those 
ugly hunks of plastic stuff that some people call flowers all over 
the cemetery.
