Re: Re: HYB: registered rebloomers

Thanks so much Linda, you have soothen my sorrow away!
Your figures are more than encouraging!

Barry Blyth told me the same, that rebloomers made the shipping mor
complicated, since they irises are supposed to go to sleep during summer, and
the rebloomers don't want to behave properly!
Guess that's why i love them...!

  Loic, maybe that's just year to year variability?  The average is still
  around 40 per year, a slightly higher rate compared to the 1990s and
  much higher than previous decades.

  Some hybridizers <hate> rebloomers, because it makes digging and
  shipping more complicated.  So maybe around 4 percent is as high as it
  will go?

  Maybe I'd better register and introduce all my less than perfect
  rebloomers to bump the numbers up <g>

  Using the online checklist, searching for <&re AND R. 199> etc
  2000s - 328 of 7711 (using your numbers, Loic)
  1990s - 360 of 8600
  1980s - 271 of 6881
  1970s - 154 of 6165
  1960s -  93 of 6235
  1950s -   5 of 5513
