Reblooming iris bloom not once, but twice a year ?first in the late spring to early summer, and then again in midsummer to frost. When the flowers on the stalk are spent, cut the entire flowering stalk down to foliage level but leave the foliage alone. Later in the summer it will send up a new flowering stalk and bloom again for you. Enjoy!
