R. J., in addition to other factors, I would need to know what irises you are 
growing.  Several factors figure into rebloom, length of day, rain fall 
(watering helps, but iris like their water with velocity)!  Average daily 
temperature, and things we probably haven't thought of, control when the 
stalks begin to extend. 

But, without question, there are a lot of irises that would never, ever, 
bloom outside the spring season!  A recent thread here even indicates that 
many of us believe some irises, Silverado for instance, have rebloom 
inhibitors that they pass on to their children.  It seems to take another 
generation for the inhibitor to be supressed. 

Yes, it's possible, your irises may not have the genes!  Have you been 
collecting rebloomers?  Sometimes they need a year or two to settle in.

Betty in BG KY zone 7  still loving the fall blooming seedlings.  Children of 
Earl of Essex, grandchildren of Immortality and Feedback.  To mention a few 
reblooming parents at work here.
