I have "Zee" blooming right now. This is a Don Spoon IB that is well known for (RE) re-blooming. This "issue" only occured on this one petal. All the other Falls and standards look correct.

Interesting to see if this repeats itself. Sometimes similar"defects" are caused by spray drift,or so I've been told...Arlyn P.S.---Think of it as a "beauty Mark"

What zone are you Greg, I wonder if that would re-bloom here? If this is it's ususal time to rebloom, then it might make it here, might have to give it a try.

I've added Zee to my want list. I avoid Irises with this coloration because I already have Jesse's Song -- which is similar. But I really like the dark purple stripe down the center of the fall petals. Besides -- Jesse's Song doesn't re-bloom. Smiling

Thanks for bringing this Iris to our attention, Greg.

Jesse's Song is lighter in coloration; this one is much darker. & because it is an IB, it seems to stand out more for me. The colors are much better in person.

Tom-I am on the MD/PA line (good ole Mason x Dixon). I am in zone 6b.

You could plant it away from the area with Jesse's Song. An IB will also bloom earlier in the spring.
