Re: HYB: Using good plants


Walter,
saying "cold country iris" I meant not "bred in cold country" but "bred for
cold country".
A world is too different and good iris for MS not at all is good for short
summer country (sorry for platitude) altough Niswonger's pinks Sky Blue Pink
and Blue Chip Pink continue to surprise me here as most reliable.
Though bloom-out is unheard of here we are unhappy with rebloomers. Even
Immortality I almost hadn't seen in the fall, rarely in the spring and
almost lost it this winter.
It is a question what is a good iris here: I have interesting variety White
Fringe - perfect flower, frost hardy, healthy but blooms each third year. Is
it worse than iris that grows but freezes each second winter and will be
lost on fifth?

What is the cause of bloom-out? Is not it a disparity between internal
rhythms of plant and rhythms of weather?
