I've found that importing irises from halfway round the world and into opposite seasons is a wonderful way to discover if there is any reblooming traits in the plant. Some have rebloomed on importation but never again in our acid soil, but maybe will rebloom for others later on alkaline soil. If it is a rebloomer here it will go mad with rebloom  for the first year while it sorts out it's season and finally settles down.
Momentous Occasion rebloomed on importation and only once since but it gives me hope that it carries rebloom. However Devonshire Cream and California Dreamin never rebloomed even on importation. In fact took two years to bloom. So it's obvious neither carry rebloom, however they did put on a lot a vegetative growth and I didn't have to worry about them blooming out which occasionally happens on importation. After I bought in Rosalie Figge I spent a lot of time dividing and replanting in an attempt to stop it reblooming and get some decent increase. It's exceedingly happy now.

Subject: [iris-photos] tb-=HARVEST OF MEMORIES

Wanted to answer Jan's letter but i don't know how to attach pictures that way. May be there's a way?
I sent a separate message then with the flowers that appeared 2 months ago, only 2 months after i replanted HARVEST OF MEMORIES from Sutton's garden.
So, this is the trick to have perfect REbloom:
First, you dig them up in late June.
Second, you send them half accross the world.
Third, you immediately replant them.
Fourth, you soak them every two days because it's full summer.
Fifth, you can enjoy rebloom in September!
