Re: The Impact of Cold Climate Rebloomers

<< In saying that cold climate rebloomers are the salvation of the tall
 irises, I do not mean that this is just because they rebloom.  Rather, it is
 because of their genetic make-up which is heavy in its origins on I. trojana
 and AMAS rather than the tender Ii. mesopotamica and cypriana.  Cold weather
 rebloomers are hardy!  >>

Dorothy questions:

There has been more discussion on "cold weather" rebloomers since this
posting.  I'm not sure I know what a "cold weather" rebloomer is, as opposed
to a "regular" rebloomer----?  Anyone care to contribute their definition?
 Are we referring to the few irises that have been reported to rebloom in
USDA Zone 3?  4?  5?  or ??  Examples?
