Re: iris DIGEST V1 #619
That is indeed interesting. Many iris go into a stasis when temps go
above 103F. There is some variation from cultivar to cultivar.Evidence
so far is that Immortality is one that goes into dormancy early with
My guess is that for Immortality it very well could be the lower day
temperatures in Nov. which allows it to come out of stasis.

Perhaps someone would find my recent temperature statistics interesting.
Day time highs have been 110 F and above for a month with only a couple
cool downs to 108 F. Night time temperatures have been in 85+ degrees
Two nights ago the low was 90 degrees. Humidity has been below 10%.
starting to go up now as we await the Arizona monsoon. Irises are
brown, going into semi-dormancy. They get deep watering once a week.
can't expect night time temperatures below 60 F. until November.
this is why all my rebloom happens in late December or January at which
it freezes out.
By the way, I'm not complaining. I had great bloom this year from
till May 20 and set more pods than I know what to do with. I
with all those who lost bloom and pods to storms and rain.

Chuck, Over the past two weeks my temperatures have ranged from 52-76
Fahrenheit. With most temperatures in the low 60's. Three days have
been below 60, while three days have been above 70. The ones above were
consecutive while the lows were not. Temperatures and humidity are
getting ready to increase while rain is not. We're minus 3 inches plus
so far. Average low of 63.6. (15 days including last night.)
