REb: Bountiful Harvest

Well, I got ONE rebloom here in NJ, and I just had to brag about it.
It was Bountiful Harvest, 4 blooms on one stalk, very pretty ruffled 
plicata, on a rhizome I bought from Sutton in July,and it rebloomed 
in Sept/Oct. I was not sure I should leave it like that, blooming 
after the shock of leaving sunny California, and landing in the rocky 
Northwoods of New Jersey, but hopefully it is none the worse for wear
and will be back next year. 
But... I'm used to alot of iris no-bloomers, so I understand if it 
needs some time off to rest in the Spring.
Who knows? 
We'll see..
Last year I had Superstition actually bud up in the fall,(but the 
frost got it before it could bloom)


PS Anyone have any ideas why an iris would come up,beautiful and big, 
and have no flowers AT ALL in the Spring? I don't know if this is to 
be expected or not. Do you experienced iris growers get blooms every 
spring on most established stuff? (basically I'm a newbie at this)
This summer they got an extra dose of phosphate fertilizer and some 
lime (very acidic soil here in the Northwoods of NJ)
I am hoping next spring will show some results from the extra care.
