You might try comparing temps between Modesto, Ca and Porterville, Ca, Mike 
Sutton is in Porterville and that is about 150 miles south of me.

Hi Ted.  That post was just to share something I ran across while trying to 
figure out how to relate rebloom that Riley Probst reported on Facebook to how 
those rebloomers might respond to my growing conditions.

Quite a few years ago, I had noticed that 'fall' rebloom starts in my garden 
(the 'iris vale of despair' or "iris hell" ) about 6 weeks after we would get a 
few nights in the 40s or 50s (plus adequate moisture etc), which usually would 
happen in August.

And Chuck Chapman has posted quite a bit here about his research and theories 
re: types of rebloom and triggers.

i grow a few rebloomers that seem to tolerate hotter conditions and will send up 
bloom stalks without those low temperatures - IMMORTALITY, TEA LEAVES, BELVI 

But the form on these lags way behind form on CA rebloomers.  So I was looking 
to see what the summer temperatures were in Modesto when he was getting rebloom.

Chuck had commented earlier that summer low temperatures where CA sees a lot of 
rebloom were like our fall temps, but I guess I just had to see the graph for it 
to sink in how much difference there is in the temperatures.  Even tho Modesto 
is USDA zone 9, and I'm zone 7, it is hotter here, esp at night thanks to the 

Any place in CA where it's hotter but irises bloom in summer?
