It's back! Immortality.

While most irises bloom once a year in late May and early June.  However there are irises that bloom more than once a year.  In some areas where summers last longer, they may re-bloom twice.  In upstate New York there are a limited number that re-bloom reliably. The most popular is a lovely pure white, 'Immortality.' This year it is particularly early in my garden.  If we have a mild fall, maybe it will be back again before the snow flies.
