The Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris might be helpful for you. You can get a copy from the Reblooming Iris Society here:
http://www.rebloomingiris.com/...
An easier and cheaper way to search is through the database.. Just click on "Search by characteristics" and choose reblooming, Zone 6... However, it is not nearly as extensive as the book.

I have been told that several rebloomers that will in CA may not on the East Coast or my area. That is one reason that I hoped some would posted about their plants in my area.

Thanks, Sherry I didn't know that was even available.

I have had Fashionista for quite a while. It's only bloomed once in the spring, and never offered to rebloom here. It hasn't been the best grower here. I didn't even know it was a rebloomer. Smiling

Bountiful Harvest seems to rebloom every year, although at very different times. It is in bloom now but in other years waits until near the first freeze in October/November so gets frozen in bud or in bloom.

Immortality [when I had it] did well, but was not consistent, giving some years with no rebloom and others with no spring bloom.

Blueberry Tart threw up one stem and blossom just about 6 weeks after planting, in late August, but no other experience with that one yet.

Others have been disrupted from the move: Crimson King, Eleanor Roosevelt, Autumn Echo. These have rebloomed in the past.

Many of Lloyd Zurbrigg's rebloomers perform in colder areas. Earl of Essex, Sugar Blues, & Clarence are some that are listed for zone 6.

Yes, so I understand! Hilarious!

Only one of them has bloomed so far and the photos I got of it are not very good, so even a tentative ID will have to wait. Guess I should just buy one - I'll have to if I want a positive ID anyways...

I don't remember if anyone has mentioned the Winterberry list of rebloomers that gives the zones. I was just there and see a number that rebloom in Zone 6. http://www.winterberryirises.c...

Teresa, I can vouch for Clarence performing well in KY- my clump has 2 bloom stalks right now.
