Watch for Re-bloomers

David Lionberger had this note and photo in the latest Lincoln Iris Society Rainbow Messenger.  Thank you David for sharing this.

Much to my surprise, as I was working in our iris beds, I
noticed there were bloom stalks on Peach Jam. Gary White
gave us this 1989 Ensminger tall bearded iris about four years
ago. It has performed well in previous years but had never
re-bloomed before. There are two large stalks with several
buds each. May blossoms have competition for September
blossoms on this one!

More Reblooming in Region 21

Oxmoor_Hills_2016A second iris rebloomed here in August; ‘Oxmoor Hills’ opened August 29th in central Iowa.  This is the second year this James Ennenga (2004) iris has bloomed super early.  It so far has 4 stalks in a second year clump.

The other iris continuing to rebloom is ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ by Larry Lauer (2013) which is a guest iris for the 2017 AIS Convention.  There have been blooms open everyday except one or two since August 14th.  Still one open today, September 3rd.

How are the reblooms in your garden this year?  Let us know so we can add them to our website.

Reblooming In Region 21

RustNeverSleeps

The reblooming season in our garden started even earlier this year.  One of the guest irises for the 2017 AIS Convention was already in bloom on August 14th in our garden and on August 9th in the Iowa Arboretum.  This is ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ by Larry Lauer (2013) shown in the above photo.  It was planted last year and did bloom in the Spring as well.

There is one other iris that has already put up a stalk in our garden.  It is ‘Oxmoor Hills’ by James Ennegna (2004) which did bloom September 2nd last year.

Do you have irises that are blooming now?  Let us know and we would be glad to add them to the Region 21 website.
