BG in Kentucky made the following statement in a post:

"I once gave an award for rebloomers shown at a 
spring show and the judges insisted on using the 
R & I's, rather than the cumulative list, to 
determine eligibility." 

While I don't often post to Iris-talk, she peaked my interest
enough to respond. Why would you want to single out rebloomers
at a spring show for ribbons. If they can not stand the test of 
being compared to non rebloomers are you not doing a disservice to
irisdom to award ribbons ?

While the earlier reblooming iris were often inferior in what was considered
good form, many now can hold their own and need not be placed is a 
special class of "the also runs"! The early hybridizers of rebloomers had 
to deal with this stigma for decades, so we should put it to rest. Simply a tall
bearded reblooming iris should be held to the same standards as any other 
tall bearded iris.
