In addition to being a lovely garden iris, it should be quite helpful in advancing form and overall quality of rebloomers.

Normally reblooms twice here and may bloom more often in warmer climates. Lovely show stalks and plenty of buds. Sdlg. S142ER: (Summer Luxury x Sweetly Sung) X Advantage sib. $55.00.
