Right you are, Tom...it is also an exellent iris to use for rebloomer
seedlings when crossed with a cold weather rebloomer.  Lloyd Zurbirgg got the
gorgeous, dependable reblooming JENNIFER REBECCA when he crossed VANITY with
the yellow rebloomer GRACE THOMAS.  Earl Hall got what is probably the best
formed pink rebloomer PINK ATTRACTION  when he crossed VANITY with JEAN
GUYMER. I think most breeders for rebloom would agree that the potential for
good rebloomers from VANITY has not by any means been exhausted...far from
it.  Clarence Mahan in VA.
