Subject: Repeat bloom stalks


Hello, Betty,


The only repeat bloom stalks I have on irises that I don’t believe are rebloomers are on Burseen’s Alaskan Moon and on a couple of my favorite seedlings.  Margaret Inez X Ruffled Goddess bloomed three nice stalks in late March and another now.  Coral Point X Pond Lily has sent up another stalk a week after the first three were one.  Since these are first year seedlings, they may just be confused about when to bloom, but all of my selected Mariposa Skies seedlings are sending up repeat stalks two to three weeks following regular bloom.  Mariposa Skies itself is not and never has rebloomed for me.

Most of my rebloomers are repeating now.  I have six stalks on both Total Recall and Clarence.  Clarence is blooming out.  Total Recall will still have a couple of fans left, but there will be none to give away.  Mesmerizer usually blooms to the point of bloom out.  I never know which year I’m going to lose it entirely.  My favorite seedling from the M X Pink Champagne cross bloomed first in February and is starting up a repeat stalk.  It’s a very strong clump and prettier than either of its parents, so I don’t have to worry about it.  I suspect that it is a rebloomer, and hope I’m right.
