Re: CULT: Rebloom -- Wearing Rubies

Dear Griff: No knowledge about WEARING RUBIES. But thought I would tell you about the VV 72 crossof mine at Michael Lockatell's this spring. Every iris in the cross was huge, with excellent substance, excellent branching and excellent substance. The growth is also super-hardy. I made crosses with some of the Space-Age oranges, which seem to grow with compromised vigor. None of the 72 cross had appendixes, and it will be interesting to see if they rebloom. RENOWN is a key iris in the complicated parentage. Bill Shere (sp?) said the one white was as laarge an iris as he had ever seen. Unlike some crosses, these have not shown rot on the podded stems. The pollen parent of VV 72 is an iris that I had told Mike would be very important!! Hope you are AOK; soing fairly well here. Sincerely, Lloyd Zurbrigg.

I have several plants from Tempo Two which have been sitting in pots for

I wonder if it has rebloomed for anyone, or may this just be a fluke resulting
from its transfer to the "wrong" side of the world? -- Griff

The first order I followed Barry's advise. He said that when Keith was at Stockton Iris he put them in the "lath" house. I put them in a dark corner of the shop and everything went well. The second order went into pots but on the north side of the house. Like yours all but 1 bloomed by June!

I really hope the AIS reprints Barry's parody of the expierence of an iris traveling overseas that appeared in the TBIS magazine!

Mr Blyth and Mr Keppel did avow that the ants that arrived in our orders were U.S. Citizens and not illegal immigrants! :-)
