So these are my TB iris that did not bloom this year ... healthy foliage just no blooms.

Abstract Art
Adriatic Waves—I cannot find this one. Perhaps it died.
All Ashore
Cantina—I am surprised because Schreiner's iris almost always bloom for me the first spring.
Caprice
Chasing Rainbows—Another surprising no show.
Classic Wine
Comme un Volcan
Daughter of Stars— Sighing!
Edith Wolford—Does anyone else have problems with Edith? She is a reluctant bloomer for me and never reblooms. This year nothing.
Florentina
Gay Geisha
High Master
Late Hours
Minnie Colquitt
Play with Fire
Romeo
Spectacular Bid
Sugar Blues—I am really surprised. I planted three rhizomes last summer and they all bloomed in the fall, but no blooms this spring.

Edith Wolford was a poor performer here, Mary. Bloomed sporadically and never rebloomed. Finally she just dwindled away and I let her go. Shrug!

Cantina usually only blooms in the fall for me here in PA. I have had Edith for many years and she generally blooms well each spring, but has never re-bloomed.

Good to have healthy foliage. maybe you will get some fall blooms!

Interesting. Edith Wolford is so well-known. One would think she would be a spot-on performer. Ah well. I was disappointed that 'Chasing Rainbows' did not appear.

Oddly enough, my 'Edith Wolford' also hasn't bloomed here for years. This year, I attributed it to being in too crowded a pot. Hmm. I was considering dividing it up and then growing it on for the club sale next year, but now...

'Daughter of Stars' was also a no-show (she's in the ground, so no excuses there).

Several others were no-shows... 'That's All Folks' in particular comes to mind, but also 'White Extra' (unregistered SA) and 'Strawberry Frosting'. 'What a Beauty' did not bloom last year, finally started some increases last autumn, but it still has not bloomed! Glare

Daughter of Stars can't be stopped from growing and blooming here. I have to divide it every year as it increases fast. it is a reliable fall bloomer too. I guess if I only had one rebloomer it would have to be DOS.

Bonnie, that is what I have heard from everyone. I got an inferior rhizome last year, which may explain its absence.

That one little rhizome should rebound into a lovely clump soon, Mary. Thumbs up

Mary - My Edith Wolford bloomed once in all the years I had it, but increased a bunch. When I re-did the garden last fall I didn't replant Edith. Just taking up space for me.

Daughter of Stars didn't bloom until it's second year here.

Hmm ... I may move Edith elsewhere. She is in a prime garden spot right now. If she is going to be stubborn, she may be tossed.

Does not perform well in California, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina. That is quite a range.

I have a very long didn't bloom list.

It took me two years to complete the task, but you are not alone, Rob.
Rest in Peace, Daughter of Stars. Sad D'Oh!

William,

I would just like to get her to bloom once before she returns to the stars. Grumbling

She is a beautiful luminata. Sorry for All of the growers she does not perform well for. I moved part of her to a north wall that is often wet. She blooms spring and fall. Shrug!
