This is a large, tall variety, perfect for the back of a perennial border. While its size is big, it style is totally precious—sweet fragrance and pastel, ruffled petals are set to make visitors coo. And because we're offering Pink Attraction in the KickStart rhizome size, you'll see these pretty blooms sooner. Even a top-quality #1 rhizome may take a couple years of building energy before delivering perennial color. KickStart Iris are guaranteed to bloom in year one. Plus, they're already developing more stems for year two... or divide and share them with an envious friend. Also, we only selected reblooming iris varieties for this series, so no matter if you create a mass planting of Pink Attraction, or surround it with other KickStart varieties, you'll have an extra-long iris season to look forward to.
