  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] REB:OZARK REBOUNDER
  • From: ranchiris@aol.com

This is Ozark Rebounder (Nicodemus 2003).  It is a cross of Hello Darkness X Epicenter.  I feel the color and form are a step forward in rebloomers, although I can't figure out where the rebloom comes from in this pedigree.  Barbara Nicodemus, whose irises are introduced by Phil Williams' Rockytop Gardens, is a new hybridizer for me. 
It is a new one for me.  I potted it when the rhizome was received this summer & put it into a re-amended bed in September.  I brought in inside last week, as a hard freeze was eminent.  Since the rebloom was set elsewhere, I can't be sure that it will be a dependable rebloomer here in Arizona, but I'm sure hoping it will!!  Even if it turns out to be just a good-growing black in our climate, I will be happy.
I also have Crimson Lights (Nicodemus 2004) from the same cross.  I have high hopes for these darks, because Epicenter is a great grower here & Hello Darkness isn't too bad.  I won Best Specimen of Show with Hello Darkness at our 2004 Show.
