I have read that Mrs. DeGolyer planted the I. fulva in the wash on the NE side (?) of the house. The bed just to the south of that is a later planting (There is a photo on the NANI web site of the newer bed.  See my signature for the URL).  I do not believe that this clone has been registered. I have thought of contacting the Aboretium and suggesting that they do register it and offer it for sale as it is a very nice form .  I do not know of any red fulvas that are AIS registered but there are several named clones.  Some red LAs are sold as fulva or "fulva types" (ex. RED ECHO)  but these are all hybrids and quite different than the species.

As for reblooming, I have another fulva that reblooms. Mostly it repeats, that is it blooms again not too long after its normal season.  Ocassionally it will send up a stalk in the fall.  Last year it tried to bloom 5 different times between March and December.  I say tried because late and early frosts got the March and December bloooms and the mid summer blooms never ammout to much.
