Hi Linda!

     You write (16 Feb 97):

> Are there reblooming diploids?  miniature tall bearded?

My understanding is that rebloom in diploid bearded iris is extremely rare.
In the Ohio Gardens catalog I have (1992), which has an exhaustive listing
of MTBs, LADY EMMA (F. Jones, 87) is noted as the ONLY reblooming MTB. It
is a diploid, incidentally. In his last catalog (1991), Monty Byers listed
LADY EMMA as the only dependable rebloomer, but also noted reblooming
tendencies (in mild climates) in three of Ben Hager's tetraploid MTBs
(ABRIDGED VERSION, LITTLE WHO, and NEW WAVE). Terry Aitken does not note
reblooming tendencies in any of the MTBs he currently lists. Overall, it
looks like slim pickings in this direction.
