I have a co-worker that has a hugh white with touch of light purple bearded iris that she says produces a flower in the spring and then again in the fall. What is the name of this bearded iris? I would like to grow some in my garden. She didn't know.

Iris germanica is the botanical name for reblooming iris. I can't tell from your description whether the flower is 'Clarence' (The blooms are 4 inches wide, with deeper Wedgwood-blue falls, and cloudy white tops), or 'Immortality' (Measuring 3 to 4 inches across, they arise plentifully on long stems -- often 2 or 3 stems per fan). If the plant is single colored rather than bi-colored, it is probably 'Immortality'. Hope this information helps!
