i thought they rebloomed in the fall. found this while trimming and preening...it's about a month after bloom season here.
no stalk, it's really blooming at the base of the plant...Queen's Circle

Starring Encore (35" Tall - Rebloomer): 3+ months of continuous bloom! A week ago I went out to trim what I thought were the last spent blooms on Starring Encore (TB Re) only to discover another 8 new buds. This last Friday a couple of those buds were open. And a new stalk with 3 buds greeted me. My little bed with six Starring Encore plants doesn't seem to know when to stop, having begun to bloom in mid-Nov. with continuous blooms. These photos were taken Friday (Feb. 20, 2020). (I live in Zone 9b in Phoenix, Arizona with 115 degrees of average highs in summer, 1 or 2 lows of 30 degrees in winter, 9 inches of average rainfall per year, 0-10% average humidity.)

Iris Sisters (mail order) has a great selection of rebloomers. Schreiner's has some too.
I don't know about Kentucky, but here in SE Missouri, only one of my rebloomers has rebloomed consistently. I got some new ones last summer from a local iris society $1 sale, which the club member says bloom better here than the varieties I already had. Crossing Fingers! I hope some more experienced iris gardeners will see this post and give you some pointers.

Evelyn,
Corn Harvest - it's a total keeper. One Fall it bloomed 3 times. Besides that, I've been able to give away increases from it every year. I'm not sure if it has ever bloomed in the Spring, though. Thinking
