Tip: Plant rebloomers a little closer together than standard varieties -- about 12 to 16 inches apart.
Tip: Most rebloomers are tall bearded iris, but other types -- such as dwarf bearded, Japanese iris, and Siberian iris -- can also rebloom. You'll probably need to seek out a specialty iris grower to obtain these varieties.
'Rosalie Figge' is a late-season bloomer that grows 36 inches tall.
Tip: Like other rhizome-producing irises, rebloomers require shallow planting. Set the rhizome no more than 1 inch into the soil; ideally, about the top quarter of the rhizome will still be visible after planting.
This iris blooms early to midseason and grows to 34 inches.
Tip: When dividing irises, check rhizomes for softness, which is a size of disease or insect damage. Discard any rhizomes that are not firm and plump, or that don't have fan of leaves.
