Gardeners' Notes:

This is a reblooming machine in Southern California. I had flowers from April to June and again from July to December! I divided them in November and there are new bloom stalks developing. The color goes with everything.

This is another excellent re-blooming Iris and does very well in the coastal area of South Carolina. Mine produced 34 huge blooms in late April/early May of 2005. Also held up well in a vase for almost 6 days when cut just after full bloom.
