Re: HYB:Germination and rebloom

In a  cross with strong rebloom, I found different rebloom characteristics  
the 1st and 2nd year's germination!  Will this be consistent in  these  
as the years pass?  Will this pattern repeat in  other strong rebloom  

Betty W. posed the above questions. I don't believe there have ever been  
controlled studies of the subject.  On the other hand, I continue to think  that 
the rebloom characteristic is closely connected to hybrid vigor and  its 
impact on vernalization. There is in nature only one known species that  fairly 
consistently reblooms and that is Iris subbiflora (syn. Iris  biflora Linn.). 
This species is itself a hybrid with a chromosome number of  2n=40. Reblooming 
irises came into being after man started making wide  crosses.  The great Dykes 
was the first to note the relationship  between hybridity and rebloom. See The 
Genus Iris narrative under  Iris lurida. (In my working copy it is p. 172).
