I think this lovely iris is Rebecca Anne. The white iris could be any one of several whites I used to have, but the only name I can remember is Immortality, and I know that reblooms in the fall. I have never seen this one rebloom, but that may be because of weather or growing conditions. Any help is appreciated.

I'd say you are 100% on Immortality, and 95% on Rebecca Anne. Immortality is SUPPOSED to be the "reblooming wonder", but last fall was the first time in about 15 years of growing it that it put up fall stalks for me! Just before the bud opens it has a decidedly blueish cast to it, almost making you think the flower will be sky blue, and then, suprise ! It's white !...Arlyn I tip my hat to you.

I used to grow Rebecca Anne, it looks like it to me. Immortality did not do well for me at all, much less rebloom. It had to go.
