Hi Guys-

A member of the Greater St. Louis Iris Society sent me this photo this morning, and needs some help ID'ing it. It's obviously a re-bloomer, since we're near the end of October here in St. Louis. Any ideas?

There are quite a few yellow rebloomers. I would start in the ATP database and pull up the whole list of yellow rebloomers. I am assuming it is a TB? That will help to narrow it down.

Looks like which is a pretty widely distributed and reliable rebloomer, even in the Midwest.

Of course, there are at least a couple dozen other possibilities....

Does it rebloom for you Mary Ann? I have gotten some rebloomers that never do here so before I get to mooning over a known rebloomer I need to know how well it does down south.

It has not rebloomed here to my recollection, Bonnie. However -- my clump of Amain is so very overgrown that I don't know how it manages to bloom at all. Plus -- I do not give my rebloomers any extra attention at all. They get exactly what all the Irises get -- and no more. I could do a better job in that regard........

Thanks, Kent! It looks like you nailed it! But I'll look at more, just in case. I love this forum. You guys are awesome!
