Rebloom scape coming up on rebloomer

I was looking at my daylilies today and I have some reblooming irises planted in the same bed. I was shocked to see a rebloom scape coming up on Immortality. Immortality is a reliable rebloomer for me but never in July. The earliest I remember seeing rebloom here is around the second or third week of August, not July.

I also have a couple of mums blooming, and that's not something I've seen at this time of the summer before. We've had awful weather-hot, humid, and dry. We've not had a nice steady rain here since May. The pop up showers miss us to the north and to the south. My DH and I water with a sprinkler and hose about twice a week just to keep things going. Most everything is still doing all right so far. But I'm seeing things happen that I've never seen here before at this time of year! Anyone else have rebloom this early?

Dashing rebloomed for me a couple of weeks ago. I don't water my iris, & it was in the midst of a really hot 2 week period, 100 up to 112 every day. I was shocked. Not just 1 bloom stalk either, there were 3, from a 2 year old plant. I never have rebloom on anything til September at the earliest. I had a mum blooming in June, although if I don't keep them cut back they bloom in July anyway. Which is ok, they will rebloom before frost anyway, but they do get a bit shaggy looking.

Glad to hear someone's Immortality is happy! :)
No rebloom here as of yet. Just thought that I would drop
in and say hi. When I get some believe you me I will announce it, can't wait! Have a great weekend!

It's been an odd year all over the country. Jennifer Rebecca is blooming today for me, but it's too hot and it is fried.
