Re: Re: HYB: registered rebloomers

Thanks for putting things into a positive perspective.

Indeed, standards have evolved, and the rebloomers will benefit from the
higher standards as well !

But even if we would add all the irises with rebloom genes and potential
rebloom to the few irises registered as rebloomers, the % would not reach 10!

It surprises me a lot that so few breeders have rebloom in mind:
I've noticed that the few rebloomers that were on the market must have a big
commercial impact, since they can be found in a majority of catalogues.
So why not focus more on breeding new better ones?

  Loic,  maybe that's just year to year variability?

  And was there not some noise at one point about urging  more circumspection
  generally in denominating cultivars as  "rebloomers" so that the rail may,
  perhaps, now be perceived to  be somewhat higher than previously, viz a viz
  normative expectations  ...or am I misremembering?

  After all, one understands that gains are being made, and it  follows that
  the standard within the category must also be  evolving. Perhaps because, to
  discriminating, some newer  rebloomers are better rebloomers, fewer lesser
  cultivars are perceived  to be worthy of introduction, so that whereas the
  quantities of  introductions are  more or less static, the overall quality
of the
  introductions is higher.
