'Again and Again'


By siris


Bearded Iris ‘Again and Again’, trying to flower now, late November. This reflowering variety did the same thing last year into December, but the flowers failed to open.

Reflowering?? It has never flowered during the normal Iris flowering time, so I have as yet to see the yellow and white blooms. At least reflowering ‘Immortality’ has its’ late flowers in September when they have a chance of opening.
Waste of space?

Probably not - patience is a virtue! So please to hear Immortality has flowered twice - I hope the one you sent me will do the same!

I suppose this year, with such a long mild Autumn, was its best chance to show you the flowers.

How annoying is that?

I have irises that have never bloomed. I tried moving them to a sunnier spot. I'm giving them one more season - then rubbish pile for them.

Patience has its own rewards....

Steragram, with 'Immortality' I have more than one rhizome, I don't think if they late flower the same rhizome will flower again in Spring. 'Again and Again' has 3 rhizomes, 2 are flowering now, maybe the third will flower next spring.
Paul, If it goes really frosty, will cut off the mushy blooms.
Thanks Linksl, I am patient. I waited 5 years for my own Iris seed to flower.
Bathgate, as an Iris lover, I am not sure you could do that. I have one called 'Lullaby of Spring' flowered once in 10 years, doesn't increase well for me, but keeps getting one more chance.
Really annoying, Linda, worse is when one starts to flower for the first time, then you knock the head off!

Ah well, it was a nice thought...
