Fortunate Son, Plum Poodle, Silver Dividends, Clarence, Orangutan Orange, Glacier Blush. These are all very heavy bloomers in the Spring. Clarence and Silver Dividends are multiple times per year Rebloomers for me. Repartee and Hotdogs and Mustard have huge blooms and are good consistent bloomers as well.
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

If I'm right, zone has more to do with how cold your temps get. I think re-bloom has to do with how long your growing season is. There is some variance within a zone of how long your growing season is. That first frost often gets them here, but I have had re-bloom on Immortality, Earl of Essex, Harvest of Memories, and once on Jennifer Rebecca. it just depends on how early that first frost is.

check Winterberry Irises catalog (next year now). It lists rebloomers in a second area & gives the zone.

Mary Anne, I just spoke to a lady and she is wanting Dream Lover, 1977 to finish out her Dykes bed. I wonder if anyone might grow that one.

That's been my thinking , as well, Tom.....the number of "frost free" days is what matters. And, it's 'better" to start early (early blooming medians, and "E", or "VE" TB's), than to expect the 'late spring" bloomers to come again. For the last several years, my "re bloom" season has been longer (# of days) than my "spring season".....you have to "pick your plants", as well as "treat" them a bit differently. Lucy pointed out the Winterberry site, and, I, too, think that anyone who's really interested in seeing rebloom needs to read all the info that site has to offer. Another 'good investment" (IMHO) is a copy (or better yet, a membership) of the "Reblooming Iris Recorder", from the Rebl00ming Iris Society

Two consistent rebloomers for me here in KY are Blue Review and 9/11 Remembered. At our UKy plot I think Cobra's Eye does as well. I will check there this fall and see which rebloomers we have over there. We are trying to plant more rebloomers at the Arboretum to please the public so they see that iris are not just a one time deal.

Thank you, my friend found a supplier. Jane, thanks for posting the ones that rebloom in your area. We are within 150 miles apart, so they should do well here too! Excited to know more cultivars!

When is the best time to see the UK arboretum in full iris bloom? I have a relative I might come visit next May and in June for the dls lol.
