Pearl, how exciting! I just might have to get
this one. Does it increase well?

Subject: [iris-photos] rebloom:Witch of
Just when I was complaining about having no rebloom and low
bud count this happens. This is the first time Witch of Endor has rebloomed
for me and I don't guess it is really rebloom since this plant didn't bloom in
the spring. I moved it last year to the sunniest spot I have, which is also
the spot with the thinnest soil. After amending the soil and waiting forever,
this is the result. Both fans are sending up bloomstalks. This one sent
up three bloomstalks from one fan. So far I have counted 9 buds but I think
some of them are double socketed. Time will tell. We had our first frost last
Sunday night with a temperature just below freezing. I don't think it hurt
this iris at all and the temperature is back up to 70°f today. I found another
bloomstalk forming on Eleanor Roosevelt. I suspect I won't get to see all
these blooms, but I'm happy to have seen just one.
