Chuck, could you clarify again what you mean by "maturity" in this case? Are you saying that a fan in CA that (re)blooms in, for example, mid-July in Porterville would have to be mature in mid-Jan? So it was immature - when? First sprouted from mother rhizome a month or so prior to that, maybe mid-November?

Or first sprouted several months prior to that, then stopped or slowed growth during the coldest months, so the 5 months prior to July would have taken place partly that spring, partly the year before?

I'm a little confused by this - seems that if the fan was mature that winter, it would just go ahead and bloom, rather than just sit there for 5 months. Stalk to fan ratio must be pretty low if these things are blooming continuously? Lots of foliage just sitting around waiting for its 5 months to be up. 1 stalk per dozen fans, if it blooms every month.

Or have I totally misunderstood something?

Lullaby Of Spring only reblooms in July in a zone 9 garden.  So it very
unlikely to be a  Direct (summer rebloomer). Most likely an extended season
rebloomer. That is it needs about 5 months of growing season after plant
reaches maturity.
