Re: Re: CULT: Rebloom

From this end of the world my experience is that importing across seasons
triggers any latent tendency to rebloom. Even irises that may never rebloom
again or only rarely will do so their first year of importation. I think
it's something to do with being confused. Known rebloomers become multiple,
multiple rebloomers on import.

EG Firebeard bloomed 4-5 times the year we imported it.
Coral Point rebloomed that year, but never again.
Devonshire Cream did not rebloom.

I would consider that Coral Point carries reblooming genes but that
Devonshire Cream does not.
