We're proud to introduce a small batch of rhizomes that put on a better first year show than even the industry's top size can deliver. Even with a top-quality #1 rhizome, it may take a couple years of growing and building energy before delivering years of reliable, low-maintenance 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 you'll have an extra-long iris season to look forward to. Get The Works—one each of all our reblooming KickStart Iris varieties. The Works includes: Blatant, Halloween Halo, Paprika Fono's, Champagne Elegance, City Lights and Pink Attraction Reblooming KickStart™ Iris.
