Loic - you are lucky you don't live in Canada.  There may be between 40 and 50 rebloomers registered however, in Ontario, we are lucky if 4 or 5 of those will rebloom for us in Cdn zones 6 through 2.  Now THAT'S depressing!

Bad news for the Rebloomers and for their Fans...
Each year i go through the Registrations of the year, and count the irises registered as Rebloomers.. .
Here is the table with the results:
year reblomers total
2001 55 964
2002 54 1051
2003 52 1031
2004 46 1052
2005 43 1268
2006 39 1152
2007 39 1193
The more irises that are registered, the less rebloomers there seems to be among them.
 I find these figures quite depressing.. . 
Unless breeders are so impatient to register them they don't take enough time to wait for proof of rebloom,  or maybe they just don't bother signal it:
there are many irises that have good rebloom potential considering the parents, and might be rebloomers finally....one can hope...!
There is also the fact that a great number of irises come from cold climates now, and might not have a chance to rebloom there.
They might show rebloom with warmer and longer Autumns..... ..one can dream...!
Voilà, food for thought, and maybe an incentive for all daubers, to have a go, and give a chance to some RE X RE crosses....one can dream and hope !

who, like Betty, could die (or kill...)  for a repeat, cycle & everblooming / continuous / non-daylight dependant  rebloomer!
