Re: HYB: Daylength independent

Great summary, Chuck.  Thanks for thinking through and posting all of this.

But what a pile of potentially different sets of genes that we may be dealing with!

Any thoughts on whether it's even possible to get rapid enough growth in bigger bearded irises to match FOREVER BLUE's behavior?

I am especially interested in cultivars that produce that 'secondary' bloomstalk on a spring rhizome. It seems to contradict prevailing dictum that once a rhizome blooms, it is dead.

I have an apricot (pale orange) seedling that does this. It's GOLDEN APPLE X CRYSTAL GLITTERS. CG is reported to rebloom in some locations, but not GOLDEN APPLE.

About 20 seedlings from this seedling X non-reblooming seedling from (IMM X CSONG) may be big enough to bloom this spring (after getting whacked by the freeze last spring). Very curious to see if any rebloom or produce secondary bloomstalks.
