Above The Rim Reblooming German Iris

Striking Color Contrast
The contrasting trim all along the falls on this fantastically ruffling iris really make it easy to spot, even in a mixed iris planting. And the multiple colors splashing over these blooms make sure it'll fit in with many different cut-flower arrangements. Loved, loved, LOVED by beneficial pollinators. If you're in a Southern climate and the weather in late summer is just right, it may rebloom, too! The renowned iris hybridizer Michael Sutton bred this award-winning variety. The ever-popular German Iris has that classic elegance that makes a spring garden so strong. An easy-to-plant fall rhizome you can leave to chill overwinter and watch in spring as it burst up with tons of extravagant blooms. Give it well-drained soil and sunshine and you'll enjoy years of low-maintenance beauty and fresh spring bouquets. They can also be divided every few years for a bigger, more impressive display. Rarely bothered by deer.
