Re: [iris] Re:Rebloom cold record?



My location, near Winnipeg Manitoba, is also rated as 2b, although I think it's a mini climate, Z3.

Right now, there's SDB's Wizard of Hope, Blueberry Tart and MDB Forever Violet reblooming, all hybridized by Chuck. What confused me was that Blueberry Tart has been in the same spot since I planted it in 2002, and this is the first year that clump has rebloomed, although other, younger, clumps have rebloomed. It's possible I disturbed it's roots, planting something else nearby earlier this summer.

Autumn Jester and Forever Blue regularly rebloom here as well, but nothing on AJ this year, and only minor rebloom on FB so far, when it often reblooms in July and Sept.

I got word today that my SDB 'Autumn Jester' is in currently in rebloom in Brandon Manitoba in Canadian Ag zone 2b. As Canadian ag zones are ranked a bit differently then USA zones, this could very well be ag zone 2a USA rating.

Has anyone heard of rebloom in  zone 2a before?

Autumn Jester rebloomed here up to about two weeks ago when it finnally ran out of mature fans. Usually in a clump bloom until end of August. A real problem finding fans to ship. Started rebloom about a week after spring bloom finished.
