Re: Re: REB: Rose Kinnard's seedlings


Hi Chuck, just FYI FE did put up a fall stalk here last year, to late to open but stalk of 26 in. with 6 buds were there when hard frost in Mid november took it.  Gives me hope that it can pass some increased tendency to rebloom.  Maybe wishful thinking, but the 08 Fe seedling also holds out promise.  I will keep you posted. 8>)
Rose Kinnard
Zone 6 

Final Episode seems to be  one of those iris that rebloom when it has an extended period of warm weather while in a mature state. A class of rebloomers  that  are basically "prefernial vernalization" as versus "Obligatory vernalization". 

These types will rebloom in Australia and California, but not else where. 

So breeding with it  will perhaps produce California rebloomers, but unles you live in a climate that has an apropriate long warm growth period, it won't contribute much to a rebloom program.
