 I would tend to agree with Betty on this. Although I call the California (or
Warm? climate rebloomers) preferential vernalization? reblomers.

Your conditions are so differerent than mine? that I can only offer a guess.

I'm assuming that your flower beds don't have? suplimental light in fall/early
winter.? This is based on the fact that? in California, ther can be a lot of
rebloom in dec/Jan when? there is suplimental light.

I suspect that what is happening, is that by the time you get? the cooler
weather you need for rebloom, that the natural light is so short, that the
plants can't be triggered into bloom. So you get? lots of plant growth. So
that when spring comes, you have? many fans in various states of growth, that?
bloom as they reach sixe to bloom.

These can basically be any of the? differrent? rebloom types. But I would
suspect proabilities are? fall cyclic and preferential? vernalization
(California rebloomers)? tied, followed by summer rebloomers.

Best bet in evaluating what type of rebloomer your seedlings are? would be to
have someone in a differerent climate grow these seedlings, and see what they
do for them.

I would suggest?? looking at your daily temperature records, lows and
maximums. co-ordinate this with? maturity of? fans, trigerbud set
temperatures? and rebloom.?? this wll help deceide what is rebloom trigger,
and thus what type you have.

But based on the parents, I suspect , as Betty said. Caifornai rebloomers.

Are the clumps of these? rebloomers currently showing a number of fans in
various states of? development? I would strongly suspect? so.

&lt;&lt;what type of rebloomers I am working with.&gt;&gt;


I'm not a geneticist and not qualified to say, definitively, what you are
working with;however, the irises you list seem to be warm climate rebloomers.
Most of these have rebloomed either in AU, CA or OR.  I grow both Barbara My
Love & Pink Champagne and neither have tried to rebloom in my climate, zone

ello all geneticists,
 still haven't had any comments on the type of rebloom I have been getting
ere in the unique southern Arizona climate.  I never get fall rebloom as it
akes too long for the rebloomers to recover from temperatures above 100
egrees F. that last  until late October.  I have to satisfy myself with TB
rises that will give almost continual bloom for two to three months in the
pring.  My Cloud Reflection, (Mesmerizer X Pink Champagne), will bloom from
arch 1 to May 20 as will about one fourth of its seedlings.  Mesmerizer
ill give about six weeks bloom in my garden.
 also have a seedling from Wearing Rubies X Epicenter that will bloom for
wo months, and  my Coral Dancer, (Barbara My Love X Cast of Characters) has
iven me several very long blooming seedlings when crossed with Pink
hampagne, though neither Coral Dancer or Pink Champagne have ever rebloomed
ere and have only normal bloom periods themselves.
 wonder if some of you can tell my what type of rebloomers I am working
