I really like that "headlight" on Suky. It's eyecatching.

WOW I have never had any luck with TB iris reblooming and I do have a few. So far the only rebloomer here has been Forever blue SDB.

That first one is a real beauty!!!

I have never had any luck with rebloomers... This year, not a single rebloom (well, no, Lacy Snowflake bloomed in the fall, but didn't bloom in the spring [I'd just planted it last Nov., so can't complain about that])... I've had Suky's husband, Clarence, in the past, in Virginia, but it never rebloomed.... never really much bloomed at all. But, this fall, I broke down and bought another Clarence at a garden shop on the Cape to see if it will do any better up here than it did for me down in VA (although the real Clarence and Suky are in Virginia, so it must work for them....). Now, I do have numerous rebloom stalks trying to come up on Crimson King which a member here traded to me... I think they are totally confused and think they are still in Texas, but they will soon be nipped in the bud, and I only hope they are not totally destroyed by the shock of the different weather....
