Reblooming Tall Bearded Iris

Reblooming Tall Bearded Iris
Iris 'Bountiful Harvest'

This Iris was blooming at the NYBG last week. It even had several stems of flowers. Seeing this flower was really nice in the fall garden, the blue and white mixed well with the green grass and the autumn colors.

About a week later I saw this Tall Bearded Iris in Sonoma. I wish the picture of it mixed with the yellow roses came out. It sounds a bit like a strange combination but it was really beautiful. I haven’t see many of these Irises this color. After briefly trying to look up which cultivar it is I gave up. There were too many that were close.

Juno is feeling much better but she is still going to the vet.

I love bearded irises!!! You're photos are beautiful and remind me of what I have to look forward to come springtime. :) Most of mine are purple, but I also have some beautiful yellow with purple and some burgundy. Gorgeous! :)

I grew an iris that looks exactly like that one in Sonoma County. As far as I could tell, it was called Jesse's Song. Extremely vigorous and prolific, fabulous blooms. I wouldn't be surprised if it sent up a fall stem.

And thanks for visiting my ruby leaves and leaving a kind comment. Much appreciated.
