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?
