For many gardeners, the only drawback about iris season is that it is over too soon. One of the greatest goals of iris hybridization is to create a more reliable rebloom. The most coveted varieties include those you can expect to see not only in spring, but again in late summer to fall--like the five varieties in our Reblooming Iris Collection. Create a dramatic scene in a perennial border brimming with large, magnificently ruffled, colorful blooms. You can also use these iris as strong vertical accents in a drought-tolerant mixed planting. Then enjoy your neighbors' surprise and delight as the show begins again later in the season. Collection includes: Beverly Sills, Immortality, Summer Olympics, Sugar Blues and Clarence Reblooming Irises.
