CULT:Kentucky Rebloom

                                       Display Garden Bloom Report
Bowling Green Kentucky

I've been really busy and haven't visited our local display garden at the 
Natcher School, over on Cave Mill Road, in about a month.  We are way behind 
on rain, but the little bit we've had was spaced out.  To my knowledge, the 
garden got no supplemental water.  Last night, I was told that there were 
several irises in bloom there.  As I was driving up today, I was surprised at 
the number of stalks. The display garden is divided into four sections with a 
path running down the middle and across the center.  One section has a full 
row of rebloomers with most of them in bloom.  Several of these stalks won't 
bloom before the freeze.  Still, it's an awesome sight!  The following irises 
have stalks:

    8 stalks- Pink Attraction (Hall)
    3 stalks-Clarence (gooorgeeouus!) (Zurbrigg)
    5 stalks-Feedback (Hager)
    7 stalks-Harvest of Memories (Zurbrigg)
    6 stalks-Violet Returns, several had apparently bloomed early in the 
season.  (Hall) 
    5 stalks-Renown (Zurbrigg)
    4 stalks-Winterland (Byers)
    2 stalks-Spirit of Fiji (Zurbrigg)
    4 stalks-Rebound (brownish red on cream plicata, displaying a perfect 
show stalk today!!-Wilkerson 96)
    9 stalks-Earl of Essex (Zurbrigg) parent of Rebound
    9 stalks-Tea Leaves (Byers)
    2 stalks-Corn Harvest (Can't remember)
    3 stalks-Summer Olympics (Smith)
    10 stalks-Blue Moonlight (Byers)
    10 stalks-Bridge In Time (white with up to 13 blooms per stalk! Wilkerson 

Scattered throughout the rest of the garden were the following:

    2 stalks-City Lights (Dunn)
    3 stalks-Elainalope (Kasperek sp??)
    2 stalks-Afternoon Delight . . . not showing color yet and I can't be 
sure it is as marked.  (Ernst)
    1 stalk-Returning Chameleon . . . planted this summer/won't have time to 
bloom before the freeze. (Wilkerson 95) Child of Immortality.
    1 stalk-Immortality having trouble getting established.  Will not bloom 
before freeze. (Zurbrigg) Parent of Bridge In Time.

With a few exceptions, these were planted during the fall of 1998.  Several 
have been thinned out, but not dug, to fill orders from the garden.  Gee, I 
hope people are stopping by and writing down names.
