Hello Betty,
here are some pictures of âLow Ho Silverâ already : http://wiki.irises.org/bin/view/Ib/IbLowHoSilver
It is always my first IB to bloom, it smells lile lilly of the valley, and reblooms regularly, every year.
Substance a bit thin.  I have also some problem with rot in my heavy clay, but it it a good survivor!
Now, let me show you what it has given me till now: http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=33249763@N04&q=low%20ho%20silver
i had a hard time to get this pod with âImmortalityâs pollen, in fact it is the only pod i ever had on âLow Ho Silverâ,and i have pollinated every single flower for quite a while till i finally gave up!
i have had 3 maiden bloom on itâs offsprings last year, hope for more in 3 months! Doigts croisÃs
No rebloom, but i have replanted it so it might just be MY fault.
I will tell you if anything new happens!

At least it has the genes to be capable of blooming in the summer, even
if it's not real excited about it ;-)

It may be too humid/hot here for it to summer bloom at all, but I'm
going to try to really pour the fertilizer/water to it. Doubt it can
bloom in a pot here in the summer, but I will try some in the ground,
heavily mulched. Next to Low Ho Silver ;-)

> Actually 2009 was really a great year for 'Cricket Song' in
particular, but I don't think I'd say it would be the norm. All of the
other years, it's usually been just reliable late-ish Fall rebloom for
both of them, although there might have been a couple of odd stalks out
of those seasons.
