I have been growing Romantic Evening for at least 2 whole seasons. It does not multiply much, but it produces one lovely flower in spring and another in summer. It is the only reblooming iris I have, but it has been quite reliable, so far. I didn't expect reblooming but I did expect that it would multiply. Other varieties of iris do well in the same spot.

A most wonderful - beautiful iris. It has been used by many hybridizers because of it's many fine qualities. Recommended. No garden should be without this one.
