I had two different batches of this, increased good, but flower habit poor, very short stems (14-inch was tops) and flowers faded very fast.

This is one of my best re-blooming irises, with repeated blooms in late summer and well into October. I have had buds to be frozen back as late as November! It's a pretty iris, but I wish it would "turn itself off" after September. The only other iris I have re-blooming more is Total Recall. While I complain about too many re-blooms, It is a very nice iris in every way!

Pink Attraction has performed quite well as a rebloomer in zone 5

Positive ADKSpirit On Nov 27, 2005, ADKSpirit from Lake Placid, NY (Zone 4a) wrote:

The Pink Attraction iris in my garden produced only 2 blooms this summer. Still, in it's favor, it's only been there for one year, and it did bloom. I had other iris, from larger corms, that didn't produce, even though they appear very healthy. It's shorter than most tall bearded iris, so I would recommend a position toward the front of the border or bed.
