bloomin' Iris

To my surprise and delight I have an iris in bloom. It's called "Autumn Tryst," a Lowes plant that is still in its original pot. It sometimes takes me 7-8 months to get things in the ground when I can't decide on the ideal site or don't have one.

Although the tag did not indicate as much, it is a variety that often blooms near frost time.

Does anyone else have a variety that blooms this late?

Also, are there any daylilies that are truly fall blooming? I have one from Niche that is supposed to be, but it blooms in early August, which is probably "fall" on a Yankee timetable.

I have a reblooming tall bearded called Hemstitched that started blooming again in October and still has one stalk that has not popped open yet.

LOL at claire who only takes 7-8 months to decide where to plant something. I got you beat by about 5 years,LOL

Let me try to post a picture in a day or so. I'm i.t. challenged beyond belief...just not that interested until I need to actually do something.

Your "Hemstitched" is lovely in name and in bloom...where did you get it? Now that I have "Autumn Tryst," I think I will try to do it up in a container with other rebloomers, since my luck with iris in the ground is not great no matter where I put them.

Dottie, you must have plants setting down roots into the ground right through the pots, unless your plant ghetto is on pavement. Today is my absolute deadline. EVERYTHING must go into the ground or get healed in (pitcher plant) somehow, unless it's home is a container.

Oh, the fragrance of iris in November! There IS a god!

The only iris I will buy anymore are rebloomers. If you want a near white rebloomer, Immortality is the best. I will rebloom reliably. It is early Dec and I have blooms on mine now. go to nichollsgardens.com and see all the great rebloomers they have

Here is a link that might be useful: Nicollsgardens reblooming iris

My Immortality was blooming a couple of days ago. I must check it when I go home today. Denise in Chapel Hill
