Five Japanese Iris (JI) have rebloomed
for me this fall: Abundant Display,
Haku Botan, Izu No Umi, and Worley Pink.
The fifth was one of my dark purples,
and I don't recall the variety this moment.
Will try to consult my notes sometime
soon and get back to Karen off-list.
The JI rebloomers are like the bearded
rebloomers. Some are dependable, and
seem to rebloom at the same time each
year. Others are sparadic rebloomers,
and either don't rebloom every year or
rebloom reliably only in mild coastal
climates. Of the above, Izu No Umi, is
the most reliable - it has October
bloomed for me two years out of the
last three. It rebloomed in gardens in
Fremont (mine), Mountain View (Barbara
Gordon) and Los Altos (Edie Guidoux)
