Reboom List: Region 4


Hi,
     I'm back!!!  Had to take a computer break aft the Region 4 Fall Regional
and went "cold turkey" for awhile and caught up on planting transplanting,
weeding, etc.  You guys don't know just how hard it was to keep from just taking
a"peek" to see what was going on in Iris-L.   One thing that I forgot was that
I'd be so-o behind in reading Iris-L...  So I've been reading like crazy to
catch up.

    Below is a list of reliable rebloomers in Region 4.   Joan is the Region 4
Rebloom Chairman and compiled the list.  She was kind enough to share it with me
and I thought that some of you might enjoy looking at it.  Input has been from
AIS Region 4 members.  One thing to keep in mind is that there is a wide
diversity in temperature and growing conditions it the region.  The region
reaches from North Carolina to Maryland, and the seashores of Virginia to the
mountains of West Virginia.  Region 4 comprises WVA, VA, DC, MD, and NC.  

     Be aware that NOT all irises bloom everywhere, and this list should be used
as a yardstick in evaluating rebloom potential in your area.  You just won't
know if an iris will, or will not, bloom in your area until you give it a try.
Generally, if an iris reblooms in a colder area than where you're living, it
will rebloom for you!  Living by the coast I am in one of the warmer areas of
the region (Zone 8A).  The rest of the region is colder.  I gotten rebloom from
several irises that are not on this list.  Currently I have SMELL THE ROSES,
COARN HARVEST, ICELAND,  HARVEST OF MEMMORIES, PINK ATTRACTION and BLUE
MOONLIGHT.  The cooler spell seems to have really triggered rebloom. 

Irises that have been reported to rebloom in Region 4!
