Reblooming in Central Iowa
Thank you to Kris Jurik for sharing this photo of ‘Daughter Of Stars’ reblooming in her garden today. In addition to being a rebloomer, this Donald Spoon (2001) iris was a Wister Medal winner in 2007.
Reblooming in Lincoln, Nebraska
Another reblooming note from David Lionberger on October 20, 2016. Thank you David.
This is a photo of Cee Cee which bloomed today. TB, 1996, by Sterling Innerst. It is listed as a rebloomer but this is the first time it has for us. We have had it in our garden for six years or so.
Reblooming in Hallam Nebraska
Thank you to Leslie Rule for letting us know about this rebloomer in her garden and sending the photos. Blooming October 15th, it is ‘High Ho Silver’ (Monty Beyers, 1989).

Another nearby iris meeting for Region 21 members to enjoy. Region 8 has Marty Schafer and Jan Sacks for its speakers this year. They are in Madison, Wisconsin Saturday, November 5th, and in Minneapolis, Minnesota Sunday, November 6th. See the details on the Minneapolis meeting here. Their presentation will be on their hybridizing program and will include one hour of judges’ training on Species Iris.
The Iris Encyclopedia has more information on their hybridizing accomplishments. You can see photos of many of their irises on the Iris Encyclopedia and at Joe Pye Weed’s Garden where they have many of them for sale.
