Re: FW: HYB: Rebloom

Franchelle, warm climate rebloomers might be a better term since these bloom in other states and countries.? It's more a matter of zone than state.? I'm afraid I fell into the habit of calling them CA rebloomers simply to identify for people that didn't seem to understand what I meant with warm climate rebloom.? 

In the same vein, cold climate rebloomer is a better term than northern rebloomers simply because most of these also rebloom in the east and areas (like mine) that might be a bit vague.? 

Technically, I'm in the Eastern region and report rebloom to the Eastern?Director.? In things other than irises, I've considered myself southern all my life.? Confusing!?

I guess these would fall under the classification, California Rebloomers?

Subject: [iris] FW: HYB: Rebloom

I'm absolutely fascinated by this rebloom thread and feel that I am learning
a lot.

The past year I got absolutely no rebloom on anything, even on my most
reliable ones, Clarence, Amethyst Winter, Forever Gold, Pearls of Autumn,
etc.  Other people in this area are reporting similar results, though a few
are now reporting some rebloom.  I believe that it has something to do with
our summer temperatures.  Last summer was a record breaker for heat with 32
days of 110 degrees and above and night time temperatures around 90 degrees.
We didn't have a normal autumn cool down until late November.

Since the first of December our temperatures have been a little below
normal.  Last week, I had a blossom about to open on my rebloom seedling
that I call my "Faux Yaquina Blue".  It had been frozen, but I think it
would have opened except a bird ate it.  I now have two stalks springing up
from my Cloud Reflection X 76-36A cross.  CR itself and a couple of other
crosses from it have fat fans that will pop out stalks any day.  My job now
is to keep the birds away until I get to see them.  The bird repellant I
used last year didn't work, so I didn't get to see any perfect blossoms last
March.  It's the earliest ones they like the best.  I welcome any
suggestions about what to do.

I guess these would fall under the classification, California Rebloomers?
