Yes, it's a tall bearded. And in addition to its beauty, I love this iris because it's a very reliable winter rebloomer here and usually reblooms more than once before the spring bloom cycle begins -- and it usually blooms again in the spring too! It's really vigorous here.

I saw Again and Again blooming in a garden here in November. It was blooming and there were more stalks just starting. Must be pretty reliable. Frozen now Sad

Very nice Betty, glad things are blooming somewhere. The only thing in bloom here is my Christmas Cactus, which blooms promptly every year for Thanksgiving. I do have a few of those tiny pansy's still blooming that haven't frozen yet, I think they're called Johnny Jump ups or something. I used to have Orange Harvest, and it did rebloom one year. Most years it froze before it could bloom. I don't have it any more. Do you have other re-bloomers? Any of Suttons? He introduced some nice re-bloomers in the last few years.

orange Harvest is a pretty one, but I couldn't keep it growing. Lot's of rot problems, and slow/no increase, so I gave it up. I may try again now that I have a dedicated bed......Arlyn

It's a little on the drab side compared to most other yellows, but it brightens up a bit with spring bloom. Here is a picture taken in spring. Even when the color looks a little drab in the winter, though, I still think it is an elegant flower. There are slight purple undertones that give it almost a pale butterscotch color in winter, and sometimes there's a little purplish flash under the beards on the falls in winter.

Beautiful Pictures I wish we could have some re bloom, I get a lot of stalks but they always freeze before blooming our killing frost is normally the 2nd week in October so not enough time for rebloombers but maybe some year we will get lucky. It has finally gotten cold and feels like winter this week with a high in the 20's, all last week was in the 60's here I got beds cleaned up and compost spread felt great to work outside in the gardens in December was almost starting to feel like another wierd year like the last.

Brad -- do you have a protected corner somewhere near your house, where you could plant some of your rebloomers? That extra protection might make the difference for you.

plus water in the summer. We don't try them here any more, although one can see Immortality around in people's gardens.

Mary Ann I have tried putting them in different places all over the yard, I have some protected beds by my house that I have some favorites in but nothing seems to beat Jack Frost, I had a few throw up bloom stalks this year and I actually thought I might get one to bloom and they froze Thumbs down But I will keep trying I bought a few of the Sutton bulbs this year because they have a pretty reliable re bloom so maybe Ill get lucky some year and have a few bloom late summer or fall.

Lucy I like Immortality it is a nice plant, and I don't think the sprinklers shut off this year it seemed like i just moved them around non stop , was a miserable year to grow anything in the midwest we had no rain and record days in the 100's and so far just a dusting of snow, we will be in trouble again unless we get some moisture soon.
