October Sky - Lauer 2000
For those of you looking for a good rebloomer,
I can recommend this one. I don't usually grow RBs because they tend to
send up bloomstalks in November and get frozen out, but I grew this as one
of the auction irises for our local club.
From the original single rhizome
planted in early August, there were 8 increases by October, and it bloomed
in May, another stalk in June, another stalk in July and, finally, a stalk in
August, which was in bloom for our auction. AND there were 12-14 buds per
stalk! Of course, we had a lot of rain last summer, but even so, I think
this was spectacular!
